Live from DPC: Top Audit Failure Points May Not Be What You'd Expect
DATA PROTECTION—EUDecember 10, 2013
Would you be able to guess the top six failure points found in the last 20 privacy audits conducted by London’s Osborne Clarke?

Some of the results were not what attendees were expecting—with such factors as “excessive access to data” and “inadequate data breach plans” not making the top-six list.
