As businesses continue to develop ways to monetize information, company and customer data has gained more value. Information security leaders have gotten bogged down in the tooling and technology needed to protect the data, and have lost sight of what to do if that information is lost or compromised. It's time security practitioners understand what keeps the lights on in our organizations, make mission-critical decisions that protect and maintain valuable data, and build collaborative partnerships with company leaders to maintain data value through new security practices.
