The Sunday Brief

For this Sunday Brief I am focusing on the top blogs I enjoyed about privacy. As this is a growing issue, all MarComm Practitioners and business owners should be placing more priority on privacy. In fact, in the industry we say that you should be baking-in privacy planning (as well as cybersecurity) from the very beginning. So, with that in mind, let’s check out the latest Sunday Brief:

Dark Reading

This blog always has insightful information. This time, I am focusing on a post by Kelly Sheridan. The post is entitled 50% of Ex-Employees Can Still Access Corporate Apps. From a privacy and security perspective, this is a disaster waiting to happen. As Sheridan points out, the value of data is significant and the probability of a data breach is much higher when you fail to do one of the number one – and easiest things – to protect your client data – disable access. This is a great read and a ‘must-do’ practice for all organizations.

 IT Security Guru

I find this article really fascinating. I work hard to keep my work and personal lives separate. I have always maintained two phones – one for my personal “stuff” and one exclusively for my work. So, when I saw “Employees rate mobile privacy highly, as less than half prefer to keep work and personal lives separate,” I was somewhat surprised that less than half want to keep their personal lives separate and distinct from their work lives. This blog post was written by Dan Raywood.

Interestingly enough more than 84 per cent of employees rate privacy as a top three concern. However, there is a clear lack of trust in the ability of their employer to manage their mobile security and privacy. That is pretty significant.

This is article is very interesting to me in terms of the lack of trust that exists and secondly that so many people aren’t concerned about keeping their private lives separate from their employers. The two concepts don’t seem to align.

BH Consulting 

This particular entitled Doing privacy ‘rights’ vs doing privacy ‘right’ by Valerie Lyons gives an interesting look at privacy and different roles that individuals, government industry play.


All three blogs are a great read. I encourage you to check them out if you are interested in privacy-related topics. And if you are looking for MarComm support for your organization, reach out to us at TaylorMade Solutions.
