Data is the hot potato!

During a presentation yesterday, I was trying to make a point about the liability that comes with data and, therefore, the need for us to never forget that in cybersecurity our ultimate goal is protecting systems and data. I used the little line at the end of this quote:

Data equals risk. It is toxic because of the potential liability that goes with it. Data is the hot potato.

Despite how corny it sounds, I had several people approach me later to tell me how much “data is the hot potato” stuck with them (and, it could be because I had them join me in chanting it!). So, why not share it with you? Now join me in chanting,

Data is the hot potato!

Data is the hot potato!

Data is the hot potato!

Data is the hot potato!

Data is the hot potato!
