Heather L. Buchta quoted in article “Not If, But When”

AZ Business Magazine

Below is an excerpt:

Heather Buchta, partner at Quarles & Brady says business leaders need to engage in some internal due diligence and ask themselves these questions:
  • What internal policies are in place to protect data?
  • Is there a policy against removing devices from the business location?
  • Is there a policy to encrypt data?
  • Even more basic, what kind of data does a company have?
“Risk of a breach increases as the volume of data a company has increases and oftentimes the data wasn’t even used by the business,” Buchta says, “which is creating an increased risk for no business purpose.”
