Cybersecurity and privacy is a double-edged sword. The more data you collect about your employees and enterprise the safer you are, but the less personal privacy exists. Governments, organizations, and the public alike are having to continually redefine what privacy means as the physical and digital worlds continue to blend. From the 1967 Katz vs. the United States ruling that intercepting communication requires a warrant, to the recent story around Amazon releasing Echo data to help solve a murder case, everyone is thinking about who is listening to their calls or tracking their web behavior… I know I do.
While privacy has always been a topic of conversation, it continues to become a pressing matter that every organization must think about. New compliance regulations are emerging to put the power of consumer data back into the hands of the consumer. At least that is the case with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union. So, to get an inside look at privacy in the changing world of cybersecurity, I met up with an industry analyst, Mike Osterman at RSA 2017.
