Data is the most critical asset to any organization, whether it’s patient details, credit card information, or confidential operations information. Data is the core of any company and the one item that no amount of money can replace once it’s gone. The importance and private nature of data frequently make it a target for criminal activity and hackers that can leverage or sell this information for dubious purposes. These facts are not a surprise to anyone given the data breaches that have happened recently at many notable institutions. The real shock is the extent that many businesses’ data remains unprotected and at risk of theft or corruption.
