Data is the heart of business operations. And much of that data is sensitive or regulated. Cyber threat actors know they can benefit financially from your data by holding it for ransom or selling it on the dark web. The most recent Cost of a Data Breach Report 2022 from Ponemon Institute and IBM clocks the average data breach cost at $4.35 million USD (that’s $164 USD per data record).
The stakes are high. Your security must be too. That’s why organizations across industries, such as financial services, government, and healthcare, have placed their trust in Appian to help protect their sensitive and highly regulated data.
