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.

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.
