Data is the lifeblood of any organization, and when that is put at risk by employees ignoring company policies around confidential and personal data, it can lead to serious consequences.  

Although GDPR compliance and potential fines are grabbing the headlines, this is but one example of the risks companies face.  Other potentially damaging risks include reputational damage, loss of customer trust and goodwill, and loss of competitive advantage.

It is essential that companies treat data responsibly and with the respect it deserves. Ensuring that appropriate controls are in place, as well as being prepared for a breach, loss or a "bad leaver," equals being safe-guarded and ready to respond.
