Two senators have crossed party lines on a bill that would improve safeguards for Americans' personal data after months of congressional scrutiny over how businesses from credit bureau Equifax to social media giant Facebook handle such information.⠀
The Social Media Privacy and Consumer Rights Act from Sens. John Kennedy and Amy Klobuchar would give consumers the right to disable data-tracking and collection, require terms of service to be written in plain language, and mandate that users be informed of data breaches within three days.⠀
"Every day, companies profit off of the data they’re collecting from Americans, yet leave consumers completely in the dark about how their personal information, online behavior and private messages are being used," Klobuchar, a Minnesota Democrat, said in a statement.

Currently organizations are starting to see that data and content should not be considered separate aspects of information management, but instead should be managed in an integrated enterprise approach. 🌐 Enterprise information management brings Business Intelligence and Enterprise Content Management together. ⚙️ Currently organizations are moving towards Operational Business Intelligence which is currently under served and uncontested by vendors. Traditionally, Business Intelligence vendors are targeting only top the pyramid but now there is a paradigm shift moving toward taking Business Intelligence to the bottom of the pyramid with a focus of self-service business intelligence.

How Major Companies Find Leaks
Serious data leaks are increasingly prevalent in the news. We mostly hear about the immediate impact of those leaks and the steps taken to fix them, but how much do we actually know about how companies find and prevent these leaks?
A lot of companies require employees to sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) to legally hold leakers accountable, but this isn’t the most effective method to prevent leaks. Major corporations like Google and Apple also take proactive steps to protect information from leaking to competitors and others with malicious intent. These include dedicated leak teams, restricted employee access to sensitive information and much more.
We took a look at a few major companies to learn how they detect dangerous leaks and breaches.
Everyone can fall victim to malicious attacks and security breaches, from giant corporations to startups. Unfortunately, major data breaches and leaks can occur even with the simplest mistakes. Forgetting to log out of an account or unintentionally clicking on a malicious link can spell disaster and put lots of people at risk and damages trust with both customers and employees. Not to mention, a leak can also cost a great deal of money. The best thing we can do to protect everyone is to take a proactive approach with data security.
We can all learn a thing or two from these big businesses. For example, enlisting the help of white hat hackers can help your company discover hard-to-detect vulnerabilities that your current team might not be aware of yet. Frequent security checks and reporting can also bring potential or ongoing issues to light. A comprehensive cyber security platformis a vital way of making your data security efficient and effective.
You can take a look at your own business’ cybersecurity risk today to see how vulnerable you are to attacks and leaks. Knowing your risk level helps shape and form what plan of action you’ll need to take next. Having a panoramic view of your data and engaging in accurate threat modeling gets you a few steps closer to preventing any data leaks and keeping sensitive data safe.
