As all who work in a professional setting know, data security and integrity are important obligations. In order to protect corporate data, we must secure devices and documents with passwords and store data in approved locations. While following corporate security guidelines is often an inconvenience, the necessity is clear. Much of the data we create and store on corporate networks contains trade secrets, personally identifiable information, or potentially privileged communications and we have an obligation to protect that data on behalf of corporate interests. We also want to avoid any potential bad press as a result of a security breach. Stories of corporate security lapses lead to breaches in trust with our customers, which no corporation wants to face. For these reasons and more, it is clear that corporate security is of critical concern.
