Data-Driven Data Privacy Decision Making

It’s been nearly a decade since we’ve been told “Data is the new oil”. Smart businesses recognize how invaluable data is in guiding decisions and improving their offerings. Unfortunately, when it comes to protecting that ever-so-valuable data (and the consequences of failing to protect it), it can be impossible to find reliable information on best practices. In this session, we’ll introduce the latest data-driven research on data privacy and use that research to facilitate a discussion on best practices for protecting an organization’s data reserves. In particular, we’ll examine:

  • The cost of frequency and cost of data breaches
  • The impact of data loss in ransomware incidents
  • Where user risk is concentrated within organizations
  • Best practices in different aspects of a security program including (but not limited to!) secure application development and vulnerability management
  • While much of the research we’ll discuss is global or US based, we’ll also highlight some LATAM specific data points and what unique challenges the region faces.
