Access is an issue

Managing access to information is clearly an element of information governance.  That can be gaining access to useful information or can be permitting and limiting access to your information. Lots of security and leveraging issues.

“‘Ransomware’ Becomes Bigger Company Threat,” Wall Street Journal, April 16, 2015 B1. Companies admit to paying up to get access to their data.  Small businesses are targets, and initial payments seem inconsequential.

What would happen if someone blocked your company’s access to its data? How much would you pay? Who’s job would be in jeopardy?  Would your business survive?
