Re: Secure vs. compliant
@Dr. T: Absolutely.

One of my favorite examples of this that I like to use with clients is of a local hospital that (true story) has certain large trash bins throughout that are very prominently and clearly labeled as being for the disposal of documents containing HIPAA-protected information.

The problem, however, is that if I'm a bad guy, I know exactly where to look for that information. I just have to shove my arm into the bin and grab some papers and quickly dart off.

So while that's a very "compliant" thing to do, it's not at all secure.

Secure vs. compliant
"enterprises are scrambling not only to remain secure, but to be compliant with industry, government, and other regulatory mandates"

I tis good to point this out, secure does not mean compliant and vice a versa.

"a Venn diagram of data stewardship"

Glad you mentioned this, data classification and ownership where we need to start when it comes to data security and privacy.

I agree, it is well thought and written, and very important subject at the same time.

Re: Risk and data stewardship
"compliance is just another risk factor"

Makes sense. Anything and everything is risk anymore and needs to be dealt with a proper risk management strategy which should involve automation anymore.

Risk and data stewardship
At the end of the day, compliance is just another risk factor -- particularly considering that data compliance is NOT the same thing as (and, sometimes, is the opposite thing from) data security or data privacy, respectively. It all falls into a Venn diagram of data stewardship -- and all risks must be appropriately weighed and accounted for.
