In today’s interconnected world, keeping data safe is harder than ever: companies must maintain robust cybersecurity programs to protect against data breaches, malicious attacks from hackers, the loss and theft of equipment, ransomware viruses, and other incidents.

But that’s just half of the equation. When data is compromised – an ever-increasing risk – businesses face a steep cost that can include significant fines, substantial recovery efforts, reputational damages, and more.
