Details: Telecommuting, outsourcing and offshoring, supply chains, partnerships, virtual operations and other intertwined arrangements have erased traditional business boundaries. Volumes of data and information are being collected and changing hands - 24/7 globally - and risk is increasing at an intensive pace. Consequently, companies don't know what data they have, if the data is an asset or liability, where it's stored, who has access to it, and who's responsible for its safety and security. Data management? Not by a long shot. Risk management? Not close.

A new whitepaper from Deloitte, "Intensive Risk, Elusive Value: A Risk Intelligent Executive's Guide to Security and Privacy" offers an enterprise-wide perspective to information security and data management. The paper addresses present day challenges, peers into the future, and gives practical advice for bridging the gaps in security and privacy, and strategic data management. The paper serves the needs of C-suite executives, IT leaders, board members and non-IT professionals alike.

"Companies are seeking to benefit from the information age, but are constrained by newfound threats and by their own IT environments. The rules have fundamentally changed, but many companies have not adapted," said DeZabala. "Security and privacy strategies are about what people can and cannot do with information assets. It's up to companies to take control and figure out how to harness information to grow the business and how to prevent it from harming the business."
