Staying informed of the latest data privacy regulations can be a challenging endeavor, with a plethora of different security and retention requirements based on industry. And as these laws and regulations continue to evolve, businesses will need to evolve as well to keep up.
The timeline for compliance with new data privacy laws is “yesterday”
As Cynthia Cole, special counsel in the Palo Alto technology practice at law firm Baker Botts says in a recent interview, the timeline for data privacy compliance is “yesterday”. And because cybercriminals continue to target users with phishing campaigns and malware downloads, user education continues be a top priority.
So whether you use Office 365, Microsoft Exchange, or any other on premise or cloud hosted email service, are you confident you are protected from accidental or intentional exposure of confidential information contained in email, such as Social Security or Tax-ID numbers, or bank account numbers?
