Avoid lawyers talking cyber
Avoid paying lawyers like baldy here to write about cyber. I'm dumber having read this. This clown went from bilking legal clients hourly to now charging per hour for cyber for his company for people stupid enough to hire him with experience doing what? Find some better authors please.

Lawyers see risk everywhere
Has the process of computer recycling or IT decommissioning hit your radar?  i've found many companies don't have policies and procedures for data destruction - from storing equipment to be recycled to how to destroy digital media such as hard drivs and backup tapes.

Security and justice
I am a French psychologist and I am pleased that you think about 
the data security problem and the legal consequences that this may have ...
In France it's much more complicated to address this problem .
Thank you for your post !

Protect the data BEFORE you're breached
The key is to protect the data before you're breached.  All organizations must understand and know how their organization monitors its sensitive data, stays compliant and if a DLP system is in place; can it actually block valuable data from being breached? 

A few suggested best practices for Global Governance, Risk & Compliance are:

- Be aware of the data that is being sent out of your control

- Know what data can be sent out of the network, is it being sent and where to

- Data detection accuracy of the organizations DLP system ensures the protection of the sensitive data with the proper control and notification of irregular activity.

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
