With recent data breaches hitting the headlines around the world, loss of personal and corporate data has far-reaching ramifications that could potentially change the way business is carried out. Most high-profile stories in the media today address the type of data loss that impacts people on a personal level; credit card numbers, medical records, birth dates, ID/passport numbers and other private personal information. We should also be mindful of the impact from the loss of corporate data and information such as intellectual property and proprietary information, which in the hands of a competitor or even an extortionist can severely disadvantage business.
