Failure to protect client data or to honor data security and privacy mandates can lead to negative publicity, damage to reputation, loss of revenue and market share or price erosion. Failure to keep sensitive data protected could also result in failed audits, data breaches and an increasing compliance cost. In the era of big data, it’s no wonder that managing compliance costs, mitigating the risk of a data breach and ensuring data integrity are high priorities across multiple industries. It is also increasingly important but difficult for organizations to detect who is who, who knows whom, and who is doing what, to protect data and systems from threat and fraud.
