Think About It

There are two types of businesses in the world today: those that run on data and those that will run on data. Data security now sits at the top of nearly every organization's priority list. But with such a high volume of data coming into most businesses every day, how can information security professionals quickly identify which data is the highest priority for protection? After all, security costs time and money, and not all types of data are as sensitive or vulnerable as others.
