Why Cybersecurity Matters in Data Collection – Acceleration Economy

On October 27, 2022, Acceleration Economy hosted the “Data Modernization Battleground” digital event, in which leading data tool vendors were invited to showcase their products before a panel of Acceleration Economy analysts.
In this Data Modernization Battleground moment, excerpted from the opening roundtable, Acceleration Economy analyst Chris Hughes explains the importance of data from his perspective as a cybersecurity analyst.
00:16 — Chris says that cybersecurity professionals must understand data inventory, how businesses are using data, and who has access to it.
00:30 Data security must be ensured, whether data is in transit or at rest, regardless of how it is being used. It is crucial to identify any regulatory requirements around data, like health data or payment card data.
01:01 — The business world could “stumble” if it does not pay attention to data inventory, as having an accurate inventory is critical in security control. If cybersecurity professionals do not know what data they have, where it exists, and who has access to it, they are never going to be successful.
