Everyone is a Target. Your Business Needs to Take Security Seriously.
Covid-19 pushed data privacy and compliance to the background, but organizations must now prioritize security.
While 2020 has been anything but expected, cybersecurity and data privacy have dominated the conversation, as consumers and governments began to demand more from organizations that collect personal information. In less than 12 months, the business environment has drastically changed in response to Covid-19. More people than ever are working from home, with some never going back to the office, and yet, at the same time, regulatory compliance to data privacy laws continues to decline. An alarming trend not just for a chief information security officer (CISO) or compliance officer, but for all parties involved as we continue to live more of our lives behind a screen.
And as security and compliance officers take a moment to look back on 2020, it may be viewed as a lost year for business operations - a time when organizations had to drop what they were doing on the compliance front just to stay in business. Having to pivot on such short notice left many businesses in a precarious situation and the ones that survived the challenges of 2020 must now look forward to 2021. But with business practices still upended by the pandemic, remote work and new compliance regulations coming down the pipeline, what can organizations expect from 2021? Let’s explore.
