"With the onslaught of the different privacy and governance regulations - for example GDPR, CCPA - organizations have really lost the ability to collect any data that they want on their customers and storing it without really paying attention to the consequences," he says.

”The laws ensure that they are really focused on protecting the privacy, so no longer can the open market sell this data,” he adds.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA 2020, Cohen also discusses:

  • How enterprises are evolving data governance;
  • Impact of privacy laws on processes & data management;
  • ePlus initiatives focused on supporting privacy.

Cohen, security solutions director at ePlus Technology Inc., has over 25 years of experience in I.T. leadership and cybersecurity.
