)-- All companies and institutions have an increasing need to share confidential information with partners, clients, patients, auditors and service providers using many communication channels. Today, more than 90% of companies share confidential information without applying proper protection mechanisms. Doing so, they face significant risks associated with potential data breaches, loss of intellectual property and regulation compliance. The Leadership Compass Report on Secure Information Sharing document provides advice for selection of Secure Information Sharing technologies, a field that is already perceived as one of the most relevant countermeasures to protect businesses from information theft.
