A few weeks ago, I received a meeting request on behalf of one of our customers directly from an auditor. I know that there are people who dread meeting with auditors, but I actually enjoy these conversations because I get a chance to describe, in detail, the features within our software that enable the protection of data in all states – at rest, in transit and in use. More importantly, I get the opportunity to talk about security best practices and how to easily adopt a defense-in-depth security posture.

Security and privacy are increasing in importance and becoming more political; a challenging situation that has been compounded by frequent news of data breaches from high-profile companies such as Equifax, where the information of more than 145 million Americans was compromised.

We live in a world where, when using the word “fishing,” it is necessary to clarify whether it is the form that starts with an “f” or a “ph.” Ponder that for a moment — although maybe it’s only disturbing to the English majors among us. It shouldn’t be though, because although spelling-related issues are fairly specific, the existence of phishing affects everyone.

Adoption rates for new and exciting technology, like information management systems, big data and analytics platforms and business process automation solutions, are up. And with all of these systems integrated together, businesses can do amazing things, like deploy end-to-end automated processes, proliferate pertinent business information, gain insights into their own processes, and discover some market trend that was invisible to the naked eye.

The Federal Trade Commission has opened a probe into Equifax’s historic data breach in which hackers compromised sensitive data on nearly half of all U.S. consumers. Investigators want to know whether or not the breach could have potentially been avoided had the firm been more proactive in employing the latest security patches to their systems.

A common misconception we have seen in recent years is that compliance equates to security. In the wake of the Equifax and Yahoo hacks, an emerging narrative has been, “How could they let this happen?” The fundamental problem is not that companies are failing to meet the minimum requirements of compliance, but rather that compliance itself is viewed as the end of the security process.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which will go into effect in May 2018, refers to a new set of rules by which the European Union (EU) intends to strengthen and unify data protection for all EU citizens. As proposed, GDPR has huge implications extending to virtually all areas of the enterprise, with the main goal of reinforcing customer data protection. Any company serving customers in the EU – and this includes an estimated 80 percent of U.S.-based businesses – needs to ensure GDPR compliance, or face fines of up to 4 percent of annual global company revenue.
