Worldwide data leaks and hacks have begun to undermine confidence in digital services –  just when more people and things are becoming connected than ever before. For consumers, it is hard to know who or what to trust online. 

For businesses a loss of user trust can be crippling, leading to revenue losses, brand damage, executive firings and share price falls. While preventing breaches would be the ideal solution, today many companies struggle with even knowing they have been breached – the average time to detect a problem is 6 months. The spread of data protection regulation and breach notification laws will help protect consumers but add challenges to the business. 

Managing the reporting and response to a breach is, for a company and its executives, becoming critical for the company’s valuation and its ongoing business success.  However, a strong position in securing and managing customer data will increasingly be a source of future business differentiation. How can companies manage this, and what is the role of mobile for successful companies? Find out here, and send your questions (anonymously) to our expert Advice Clinic.
