The recent Facebook Cambridge Analytica crisis saw many corporates across Africa relook policies regarding their sensitive information and online presence. According to the one global EY survey, 58% of customers are concerned about the amount of personal and private data organisations have about them. With so many data breach incidents, it is essential that corporates ensure they have the right measures to protect sensitive information against malicious agents. Organisations also have to define what sensitive uniquely means for their business and they need to build tangible solutions.
