According to IT market intelligence provider International Data Corporation (IDC), 64% of businesses have had a security breach or attempted breach, and the average cost of a data breach in the U.S. in 2018 was $7.91 million.
Canon Solutions America says that along with colleagues from Vera, Barracuda Networks, NT-ware, and Therefore, it will share insights into the convergence of information security and data privacy at events in cities across the U.S. The company says attendees will learn how Canon Solutions America’s “Five Pillars of Security” approach can help their organizations address multiple areas of risk:
- Device Security
- Print Security
- Document Security
- Information Security
“With information security and data privacy, you can’t talk about one without the other,” says Mark Sinanian, senior director, solutions marketing for Canon Solutions America. “Businesses rely on the sharing of information, both electronically and through paper-based communication, for the successful operation of the company. Implementing and maintaining security measures that balance risk and business productivity is essential. Canon Solutions America’s mission is to provide our customers with solutions and services that protect the transfer of information while helping to enable business growth and improve efficiency.”
According to a data breach investigation from Verizon, nearly 43 percent of companies reporting a data breach were small businesses.
