Data integration and the future of the cloud is a critical cybersecurity conversation HR and leaders need to have. According to Gartner, by 2024, 30% of digital businesses will mandate DNA storage trials, addressing the exponential growth of data poised to overwhelm existing storage technology. People are collecting exponential amounts of data, significantly more than ever collected before.

With an increase in security perimeters transitioning to a borderless enterprise model, the security conversation must be centered on data ingestion integrating fully with the cloud. Cloud-first networks and the role of security in a hybrid, multi-cloud world show we have a moment to take the current tech conversation beyond traditional cybersecurity strategies.

So what do managers and HR pros need to know about corporate data security? Listen to this interview to find out!
