Stakeholder fears of inappropriate or unintended access to proprietary and protected information is endemic, across industry, government and more recently, in public and consumer spheres. Boards and senior management must demonstrate their organizations’ planning, preparedness and full compliance as measurable confirmations of effectiveness in mitigating those stakeholder fears, both real and imagined.

“Like it or not, actors – authorized or unauthorized – are driving the world toward the ‘Age of Transparency and Disclosure’. There is of course lots of information almost everyone wants made publicly available to the benefit of all. That said, there is also lots of personal and private information that must never see the light of day. Never.”
