#PrivacyAware Tips from NAID Members
Perhaps the best defense an organization can take is an investment
into their own thinking and culture. Continual training, education, and
reminders of the risks associated with information security across the
organization are imperative. If stakeholders are educated to value security,
the data privacy threats are diminished and the environment is ripe to
continually innovate and implement improved data privacy solutions.
