Data Is A Currency—Your Data Is Important. Do You Know What Others Are Doing With it?

by | Jun 2, 2020

The world is slowly trying to get back to normal, but it’s going to take a while. In the meantime, most people are continuing to work from home, shuffling company data across various hard drives and numerous cloud storage platforms.

Here’s a great breakdown of what many big software companies are doing with your data to track you, make money off you, and learn more about you (for many reasons including marketing).

We’re all using the cloud—however, that doesn’t mean your security and privacy concerns have disappeared. In fact, the cloud demands a closer look at who has your data and what they plan to do with it.

Migrating to the cloud across the board is a great way to increase operational efficiency and cut costs, but it also comes with increased responsibility. Especially right now, it’s an employee free-for-all. It’s nearly impossible to tell where your data is at a given moment, or who has access to it.

Picture this: Bob is sharing a server with his teenage son, who is gaming with complete strangers (possible hackers), and Susan just downloaded that confidential file to her unsecured hard drive… but you have no idea.

It’s time to get your team on the same page, and set a standard for where your data is at all times.
