    Protected Data

    Available data does not mean unprotected data. Nothing kills transparency like an information breach. Data-driven companies carefully guard their data from outside threats, while employing internal policies that restrict access to sensitive data while empowering analysts and decision makers to access the data they need; balance is key.

Data-driven enterprises do exist today. These organizations capture and reinforce the value of their data by constantly surrounding it with context — describing where it's from, who has access, and how it is being and has been used. Counter to conventional wisdom, these organizations empower people by securely, safely giving their employees direct access to data, as well as providing interactive dashboards and colorful visualizations. These companies incentivize data analysts, stewards and IT staff to collaborate clearly and efficiently, bringing significant benefits to the entire organization.
