The ROI of Data Loss Prevention
One data loss incident can result in continuous cost. After making affected customers whole, conducting an internal investigation, repairing any damage to internal systems, and dealing with expected litigation, one can count on external audits, increased regulatory oversight, and a damaged reputation to stay with one for a while. Organizations that rely on Intellectual Property (IP) for sale and use are subject to more long term and far-reaching costs when data is lost. IP is the heart of today's technology, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, and even financial firms, and their most coveted sustainable advantage. When lost, it can have a direct and immediate impact on both the R&D costs, and the revenue estimates for the full lifecycle of the asset.
