Privacy and Data Protection will remain a fundamental business challenge; not only for the IT department. With the influx of new threats and the continued changes in the regulatory environment, an organisation’s data protection needs are continually evolving.
According to a recent study, the average total cost of a data breach for the participating companies (350 companies from 11 countries) increased by 23 per cent over the past two years to $3.79 million (2015 Cost of Data Breach Study: Global Analysis by IBM Ponemon Institute).
2015 will be remembered for massive data breaches such as Ashley Madison, Anthem, and Premera asa well as the cost thereof. High-profile data breaches are a wake-up call to any business.
This white paper highlights some of the data protection challenges relating to the misuse of data, the Big Data value chain, international data transfer, and some krass examples of breach of data protection principles in New Zealand, Australia, Europe, and the U.S.
It provides guidance in a complex and increasingly important area of compliance.
