In today’s digital environment, the increasing collection and movement of data has led countries to enact sweeping data privacy regulations with high corporate penalties for non-compliance. Technological advancements increasingly make it easier for companies to collect, transfer across borders, and monetize data. In the event of a data security breach, corporations and their executive leadership find themselves facing negative headlines, lost market share, and large costs to manage and repair the breach.
