Companies everywhere are constantly collecting data on their consumers. According to a recent IBM survey, nearly two-thirds of consumers are more concerned about a breach of their private data than they are about going to war. Consumers assume and expect that companies will protect their data and will not use, store, or share it in a way that will put them at risk. A breach, loss, or misuse of consumer data will, at the very least, erode consumer trust and the company’s reputation. As a result, it is necessary that a company puts in as much effort into defending and protecting its consumer data as it puts into defending and protecting its proprietary data and trade secrets.
In this practical webinar, you will review eight steps your company can take to better determine if it is effectively defending customer data.
Upon course completion, you will be able to:
