For a firm that might share data, a big issue is whether it might be used for unintended purposes, such as tax collection or a class action lawsuit trying to prove the firm did something wrong (e.g., failed to do enough to protect privacy).

Once data about anything gets out, it is hard to limit its use. Legal adversaries want the data; hackers want the data; vigilante leakers want to liberate the data.

Increasingly, firms try to increase the legal secrecy of data by collecting it under the guidance of legal counsel. But that legal secrecy may be diminished if the data is then shared with government.

Which would you prefer: have a root canal or undergo a compliance audit? http://ow.ly/QeIHi 
A new survey indicates that organizations are not prepared for compliance audits, nor are they confident that employees are adequately protecting data. Numerous reports have reinforced that people are still the root cause of data breaches, even cyber attacks, so this fear is quite warranted.

Find out why European laws should matter to CIOs in the United States.
Europe seems poised to finalize the terms of the EU General Data Protection Regulation by the end of the year. The EU GDPR is set to drastically chance data protection law, including an increase in penalties for a breach up to 2% of a corporation’s annual global turnover. While these new laws will have a large impact on European businesses and IT professionals, the GDPR will also have an impact on US IT departments.
