The Internet of Things (IoT) has exploded in the last few years. From thermostats to cars, thousands of items can now collect, store and transmit data. The question many general counsel are asking is how does this affect data privacy, information security and eDiscovery?
There were 1,792 data breaches in 2016, which led to almost 1.4 billion data records being exposed worldwide, according to the Breach Level Index (BLI) report from Gemalto. This is up nearly 300% from 2015.
External protection from threats is obviously critical when it comes to cybersecurity. However, as these threats are constantly evolving, ensuring your information governance is effective is another approach to safeguard your data.
