Thanks Jim...appreciate the positive feedback and great additional points...also likely that the use of cyber insurance further increases a comfort level when it shouldn't

This is such an important topic and covered so well in this article
Confusion is clearly not good.  I would go further to say that there are too many enterprise risk and/or security leaders - and general business executives - who use compliance as an excuse.  Meaning, "I've compiled so now we are legally covered."  The world needs neither of those two situations.

Board of Trade regulations certified that RMS TITANIC carried sufficient lifeboats. In compliance - not as events so cruelly proved.
