Opinion: Do you know where your data is? Tough new laws are on their way. Consumer data is fast becoming an expensive liability, and it could even lead to jail for executives.
It’s only a few weeks before California’s strict data law takes effect January 2020, and there are others in the pipeline in other states including proposals to jail executives that fail to protect people’s data from a breach. Data is fast becoming a business liability rather than a benefit. I go to a lot of media roundtables organized by computer security companies, and they all say that 100% protection is not possible and that every company has to prepare for a security breach.
