Across the globe, organizations of all shapes and sizes are faced with unprecedented challenges. The current situation has caused us all to react quickly and decisively. Even during challenging times, one area that shouldn't be overlooked is data security.
I have to confess that for much of my career, I considered data security to be someone else’s responsibility. Sure I took the annual training, used password precautions, reported suspicious emails, and the like. But my mindset was that as a marketer, my job was to gather as much data as possible and use it to convert prospects into leads. Keeping data safe was someone else’s problem.
Today, we live in a different world (and I’m happy to report my stance on data security has evolved). Cyber criminals are far more sophisticated, insider threats are pervasive, and consumers are, rightly so, much more concerned about how companies secure their privacy. Meanwhile, government and industry regulations like GDPR, CCPA, HIPAA, SEC 17a-4 and hundreds others were enacted to ensure companies adhere to strict security and privacy procedures.
A common theme in these regulations is that no matter where data resides, the liability for protecting it from unauthorized access or disclosure does not transfer from the owner of the data to its vendors. Whether the data is on a laptop, a local server, on its journey to the cloud, or in the cloud, the company that owns the data is responsible for ensuring its security.
Of course, that doesn’t mean your cloud partners are off the hook. Quite the opposite: it magnifies the importance of only entrusting your data to vendors with industry leading security and privacy controls in place.
