Privacy and cybersecurity matters have emerged as bottom-line issues for corporate America for several reasons. First, privacy is personal and goes right to the heart of a consumer’s (or an employee’s) relationship with a company. Second, it is very easy to make mistakes given the complex patchwork of federal, state and international laws. Finally, privacy and security regulatory enforcement and litigation are on the rise.

In 2015, privacy and cybersecurity issues will be critical issues for every business that handles personal information – which is virtually every business.
