Re: Scale
I think we do need to focus more on these smaller business. Our business is based in San Diego and our largest client is in 5 states and two countries, no where near 5K employees. We have a total of 18 clients and all under 300 people. What has a bigger impact 5 companies at 10K employees each or 1000 companies with 500 or less employees each. Scale is an important factor to us. One screw up and shutdown a business and cost tens or dozens of people their jobs impacting a lot of people. I am hoping that someone finds a way to scale to the largest sector, small business. We need to help them as well. Jim

Re: Control
Agreed, and I think we will see an uptick in control with California based regulations and GDPR.

Re: Data collection
I know I always do. It leads me to think why is this pertinent for what I am trying to accomplish.

Re: Cisco's survey
Many providers that fancy themselves as security or privacy centric have reports like this. From the security side I would suggest the VBIR from Verizon. It gives a review of what was seen and what to expect based on trends.

Re: Scale
Thats a good point Jim. This article is really not geared toward SMB's. I typically find companies with that quantity of employee base don't prioritize privacy as high as other priorities that are more revenue generating. Not to say thats right, but that's what I've seen.

Has your experience been different?

Control
Legislation has provided power back to the people in terms of controlling their data, to some extent, Very good point. Customers should have some control on their personal data. Otherwise conflicts will arise.

Data collection
In the end, companies still need to focus on serving their customers need rather than collecting data indiscriminately This is a good point. Customers may turn away if they feel unnecessary data collection.

Re: Scale
This is good question. At the end of the day there is more SME than big enterprises.
