QOTD on Value of Data

Data is more valuable than money. Once money is spent it is gone. Data can be reused and can give you the ability to access online banking applications, use credit cards and penetrate firewalls over and over. A famous bank robber from the 1900s was asked why he robbed banks. He said 'because that is where the money is.' Cyber criminals today go to where the data is, because it allows them to access money. Executives need to develop cyber programs to stay ahead of criminals and stop old cat and mouse games. -- Richard Baich, a principal in Deloitte & Touche LLP's Security & Privacy Practice
