Data Protection – the Foundation of Trust

Data is fast becoming the most valuable asset to organisations and malicious actors alike.

To deliver value for customers, many organisations have jumped on the digital transformation bandwagon. But with increasing data collection and use, comes the increasing risk of data breaches. Today, data breach is no longer an “if” but “when”. Organisations need to minimally put in place basic data protection if they want to secure their customers’ trust.

Join us at PAW as experts share how baseline data protection and security practices can help you protect customers' data and recover quickly in the event of a data breach.
