The world has changed so much as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Offices are now in kitchens and data security looks entirely different than just a few months ago. It has never been more important to revisit how firms are managing and protecting their data infrastructure.

Data security compliance has just received their wake-up call. The sobering statistics show that the average cost of a data breach is $3.92 million as of 2019, with 43% of breach victims being small businesses. Compliance is no longer a routine task completed to make the lawyers happy. It is an ongoing battle that requires attention.
