As many organizations know, sharing data is a key component of success in today’s omnichannel, globally-connected digital workplace. Data is being used across multiple platforms and environments in order to inform decision making at a faster speed than ever before. In fact, to meet the demands of a fast-paced digital workplace, more than 90% of organizations store data in the cloud.
Yet this is pressuring organizations to share securely and responsibly, without sacrificing speed and efficiency. These priorities often clash, leaving organizations trapped in the middle of a data-sharing storm.
As breaches make the headlines more frequently and privacy regulations tighten, the message to IT is clear: maintain privacy and security or pay the price.
So how should an organization approach this new environment? What are organizations currently doing to ensure regulatory compliance, and is it working? If not, why is it not working, and what in particular is causing the struggle?
