Data Breach Fatigue – hold the mayo, please! 

Nowadays, you can’t even order a sandwich and not be at risk of your credit card data getting into the wrong hands. On January 11, 2018, Jason’s Deli, a popular restaurant chain – with great custom-made sandwiches, I might add – reported a data breach affecting approximately 2 million payment card details. Ugh… Oh by the way, Jason’s Deli also experienced a data breach almost eight years ago, which also happened as a result of POS terminal malware. Data Breach Déjà-vu? 

Jason’s Deli, and thousands of other companies as well, need to shift their security strategies and focus more on protecting the data itself! It doesn’t matter how many layers of security they have, something isn’t working and data breaches are still happening! 

The sandwiches at Jason’s Deli are too good for a data breach to happen a third time! It may force me to use cash next time I go! Oh no! If you’re reading this, and you’re not sure what your company is using to protect sensitive data, check us out. We also completed a 50-minute webinar recently, which may bring light to how data protection with tokenization can work in your Enterprise.  Here is a link to the webinar recording.

Happy New Year!! I am starting this update with a little of the older news before ushering the new. Ric Lewis provided a great spotlight session at Discover Madrid, where he introduced HPE OneSphere a cool new simplified multi-cloud management platform that enables you to build clouds, deploy apps, and gain insights faster. Check out his video The new multi-cloud management platform that accelerates your business on YouTube, it is worth watching.

And about ushering in the new with 2018 planning, one thing I like to do is investigate projects that others have already had success with, as it helps me better understand the items I need to be paying more attention to, but more importantly learn from where others have already forged a pathway. Digital Transformation is one of the hottest topics in the industry at the moment, so I have include 4 articles on companies that are successfully navigating this journey. I hope it helps and inspires you on your company’s transformation.
