With data breaches often appearing in the news, customers and enterprise leaders alike may be concerned that the enterprise isn’t doing enough to protect customers’ personally identifiable infomation (PII). As today’s chaotic economy makes for a hungry threat landscape, what methods can the enterprise apply to better protect the increased PII data flow?
In some cases, the enterprise is not storing data correctly. In others, not enough measures are in place. The consequences of a data breach are more far-reaching than a simple dollar amount. Damage to an organization’s reputation and customer confidence can be detrimental to the bottom line. Adding to the complexity, many organizations often share user data with other companies for marketing or other purposes, creating a perfect storm for more PII breaches.
