Information is essential to everyone. It is the means by which individuals navigate and maintain their lives and organizations remain competitive and profitable. Therefore, it is vital we protect our information and the systems on which our information is stored, processed, and transmitted. Failure to do so can inflict unwelcome financial and reputational risk upon you or your organization and, in some cases, may be unethical or unlawful.
However, the responsibility of protecting information does not fall solely on the organization but, rather, on everyone within the organization, regardless of job role. Each of us, both individually and collectively, is responsible for keeping information secure and private.
The purpose of this blog is to highlight the importance of protecting information, while providing useful dialogue and tips intended to help you become more aware of how you can help mitigate risk to you or your organization. As a result, our discussions will cover a wide range of Information Security and Privacy subject matter, from traditional, time-tested topics to newer risks and challenges that seemingly present themselves almost daily.
We hope you find our blog helpful and look forward to your comments!
