Data is everywhere. People are sharing information across the world for their business life and home life. Yet simple efforts at sharing some of that information can result in data ending up in the wrong hands.
Most businesses are unaware of the dangers of increased collaboration, and the legal regulations in place to protect sensitive data. Ignoring those rules can result in serious fines, litigation and brand damage. Compliance is a necessary part of day-to-day activities, and CIOs and CISOs need to be vigilant.
Organizations need to be proactive on what information they store and how they store it – whether on hard disks and drives or with cloud services – and take those legal and regulatory issues into account when it comes to the threats and risks to their data.
In light of the importance of these issues, we’ve created a white paper in association with Field Fisher Waterhouse, a European law firm with a focus on companies that are highly regulated and those with intellectual property and technology driven business models, to provide you with the steps organizations should take as part of a program to help achieve legal compliance.
Download a copy of the whitepaper “Confidential Collaboration: How to manage regulatory compliance & data privacy while keeping your data safe” to gain insight on enterprise collaboration and data privacy and regulatory concerns.
