A well thought out data protection strategy without reliable employees who understand and can implement your policies, can leave you at risk of suffering a potentially costly and embarrassing data breach. Recent high profile cases have highlighted what can happen when employees 'go rogue' or are unprepared to assist with data security. We look at the importance of creating a culture of data protection and security compliance among employees, from the point of recruitment to what to do if the worst happens.
Focus on international developments in data protection and cyber security in countries including China, Brazil and India, as well as the recent controversial developments in Russia with the introduction of a new law which will require the personal data of Russian citizens to be processed in databases located in the Russian Federation.
As we apparently talk to each other less and less, the devices around us are becoming increasingly loquacious. Vast quantities of data can be extrapolated from the growing number of connected devices in our world and can then be combined in an astonishing number of ways. We look at the direction of travel and the struggle of the law to keep up in a way which maximises opportunity and minimises risk in connected data.
