Readjusting Cloud and Data Privacy Predictions
November 23, 2020
This year’s sudden, unexpected need for cloud capabilities has helped to shift a very important learning to the forefront: Privacy and security are not corners you can cut. While the need to quickly migrate to the cloud is understandable, it is just as important to implement the necessary steps to reduce the risk of data exposure.
At the beginning of each year, experts from across industries share predictions, highlighting what they believe will be the biggest trends in the coming 12 months. It is fair to say that 2020 has thrown quite a curveball, creating business needs that none of us could have predicted.

While the need to quickly migrate to the cloud is understandable, it is just as important to implement the necessary steps to reduce the risk of data exposure — even if migration is delayed. With this in mind, forward-thinking organizations are taking specific steps to address immediate and long-term privacy and security needs. Such steps include taking a DataSecOps approach, supplementing security with privacy, and creating data-focused leadership roles.
