Privacy and security as never before

Is your IT infrastructure able to meet the new privacy requirements? Legislation like the European Union’s GDPR, California’s CCPA, and Japan’s APPI has far-reaching effects on organizations like yours. And in a recent IBM-sponsored Harris Poll, 53% of consumers say how a company protects their privacy is more important than the quality of products and services.
