Data Privacy Improves Business Outcomes, Cisco Finds

When it comes to implementing data privacy and meeting compliance requirements, organizations shouldn’t think of it as a cost, but rather as an opportunity to grow the business. 

That’s a key finding in the Cisco 2019 Data Privacy Benchmark Study, released on Jan. 24. The report is based on a global study of over 3,200 global security and privacy professionals around the world. Among the high-level observation in the study is that 97 percent of business reported they were receiving auxiliary benefits from their privacy investments, including competitive business advantage.
