Data privacy and security leaders have the daunting task of trying to justify their soft-dollar risk projects to their hard-dollar CFOs. Those who succeed know how to convert intangible realities into bottom-line outcomes. This session will review a decade’s worth of data on topics ranging from consumer attitudes on privacy, brand trust surveys, the costs of data breaches, control-failure root causes of breaches, PCI DSS compliance rates, and more. Attendees will then be led through an exercise to develop the justification for hypothetical privacy and security projects.
