In an era of unprecedented urgency for cyber health, business leaders must do all they can to implement data protection processes and behaviours that promote a culture of good data governance in the workplace.

Only with the right attitudes and systems in place, can companies begin to build an environment that reduces breach risk, offsets regulatory action, and fosters the kind of data-friendly reputation that consumers now actively seek.
