This is a critical time for data protection regimes as companies determine the applicability of the GDPR and the controls and capabilities they will need to manage their compliance and risk obligations.

Traditionally, security, risks, and threats were rarely taken as seriously by boards of directors or top executives. CIOs and CISOs, yes, but CEOs or CFOs often stood as roadblocks for upgrading or investing in improved security systems.
