economy is driven by data


The economy is driven by data ~ Data sustains an organization’s business processes and enables it to deliver products and services. Stop the flow of data, and for many companies, business comes quickly to a halt.  Those who understand its value and have the ability to manage related risks will have a competitive advantage. No matter how well an organizations data is protected, eventually there will be a breach of security or a natural disaster.  Well prepared organizations create an incident response team (IRT). 

  • Why is there a significant difference between quality assurance & quality control?
  • Why does the relationship between QA/QC impact risk management?
  • Why are policies needed to govern data both in transit and at rest (not being used – accessed)?

  • When an incident occurs, there are a number of options that can be pursued.  Which specific action(s) would YOU recommend when assets of a low value are being attacked?
