Executives in charge of information assets need to recognize the holistic scope of those information assets, whether they are structured or unstructured, and apply the information governance and regulatory guidelines to each equally. Knowing that digital technologies will change at light-speed, CEOs and their executive teams need to be knowledgeable and ready for changes in forensic discovery and see the impact of retention milestones for each type of information asset. #dataprotection #datasecurity

Even the most cutting-edge technologies like Telematics are creating abundant opportunities at all skill levels, from entry-level to management. We spoke to a #telematics specialist for our book Tomorrow’s Jobs Today, to see how his work has changed in this evolving tech landscape.
Right now, we are experiencing a fantastic transformation of the business environment but particularly the evolution of technology and the global digital economy. It is indeed an exciting time, but we are acutely (headline news) aware of the impacts of compromised data security and privacy, including the financial impact on brand and reputation, litigation, and the overall burden and distraction on the business. The exponential growth rate of incidents of data theft, damage, loss or inadvertent disclosure continues to expand not only in frequency but the scope, and complexity. While privacy concerns gained attention over 100 years ago and became topical again about 15 years ago, it is still truly in an infancy state. #information governance #privacy
Companies know the vast repositories of data they generate and store are valuable, but extracting that value is difficult. With classification tools using machine learning and applying policy expertise, we can shine some light on dark data. #analytics #darkdata #retention #data #ironmountain
The affordability of digital storage and ease of data transferability has enabled technology to transform social interactions fundamentally, but the consequences of ineffective data stewardship are quickly catching up with the conveniences at our fingertips. #digitaltransformation #cloudcomputing
People are constantly trying to figure out the most effective ways to get their jobs done. If they have technical barriers in front of them, sometimes they succumb to the enticement to circumvent those with unauthorized approaches.
For me, trust has to be earned. It’s not something that can be demanded or pulled out of a drawer and handed over. And the more government or the business sector shows genuine regard and respect for peoples’ privacy in their actions, as well as in their word and policies, the more that trust will come into being.
If we cower in the face of disruption, our ideas will get stale, our skillsets will grow old, and our energy to adapt will precipitously decline. Tomorrow’s Jobs Today is a resource for smart people like you who realize the jobs of the future are very much here today and ours to adapt to. By absorbing the observations and advice by the people who are in love with these new careers, we can transform anxiety over the winds of change into opportunity.
Did you know that we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day? Yet this is nothing compared to what we are about to create when IoT becomes normal in our daily lives. One of the experts in this book, Priya Keshav, says we are in the dawn of a “data tsunami,” and she breaks down how smart companies are already updating their data governance strategies – not only to comply with regulations, but to monetize all that data, too.
We can count on the fact that entrepreneurs and technology enterprises will continue to invent, innovate, and disrupt the status quo. For the foreseeable future, there will be jobs and careers for speeding the introduction and adoption of new technologies and building operationalization capabilities (accountabilities, workflows, and systems). Experimenters, early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards will all have jobs to do. However, we will discover that we must now cycle quickly through all those jobs.
Tomorrow’s leaders will be brave enough to scale the dangerous peaks of an increasingly competitive and ethically challenging mountain range. They will drive the problematic conversations that illuminate the valleys in between.
