Irish businesses of all shapes and sizes are trying to carve out competitive advantage by leveraging digital information.

Cutting-edge organisations harness data for a range of reasons, including to create personalised services and targeted marketing campaigns; to drive productivity; and to drive efficiencies. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, with digitised data embedded across business practices.

Digital information offers businesses huge potential, but owing to the increased use of personal data, it also creates vulnerabilities and interdependencies between two previously discrete threats – data privacy and security. For example, data breaches can result from a cyber attack, but have data privacy implications.

GDPR has meant Irish businesses are starting to feel the commercial cost of data privacy violations. So it is perhaps no surprise that we see data privacy rising up the business agenda. There has been a greater focus on privacy issues than there has on cyber security in recent years. However, it’s important to not lose focus on the real and growing cyber security risk - the number of cyber attacks are increasing year on year.
