Our Latest Whitepaper
Data security is a concern for all business leaders, but for certain economic sectors it can mean the difference between big profits and devastating losses, good publicity and government scrutiny, or even life and death.
CXOs in manufacturing, healthcare, life sciences, retail and finance increasingly value the role of security governance, not merely for developing a disaster recovery plan in the inevitable event of a cyberattack, but as a part of a robust business continuity plan.
Securing Big Data also allows CXOs — including CFOs — to take advantage of the opportunity to mine these datasets for insights and bring the process full-circle by ensuring the security of sensitive information, company operations and company profits going forward.
