Data is the lifeblood of business. Every day companies digitally capture an ever increasing amount of information about consumers’ lives, behavior and online activity. Nearly every online interaction a business has with its customers and potential customers involves sharing something potentially sensitive: a password, an address, a credit card number, location, even DNA.

Security infringements and sales of personal information represent growing risk to enterprises and consumers. Along with financial loss, Brands suffer reputational damage and regulatory sanctions when they mismanage or fail to protect personal information.
