The challenges we face
Insufficient data management is a source of great loss for business and society. Unless information is properly digitally archived and processed, public and private organizations will suffer from data privacy issues, corruption, threats to democratic processes, and resource inefficiency. For example, between 2011 and 2016 the NHS lost 500,000 pieces of patient data (including blood tests and diagnoses) because they got stored in a warehouse.
The recovery effort has cost the UK taxpayers over GBP 2.2m, with potentially life endangering diagnosis errors and delays. The 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report found that of 17,310 data incidents, nearly 20% were related to data loss, the second highest category after Denial of Service attacks.
