As with other industries (finance, healthcare, retail), the transportation and logistics industry is undergoing a digital transformation. The advent of the cloud and the adoption of new mobile and digital technologies has us in uncharted digital territory. Data once kept as hard copies in file cabinets now resides in more places across dynamic, distributed, hybrid environments and is accessed by more people, in more ways, and on more devices than ever before.
Taking that one step further, one of every company’s fastest growing critical assets is data—growing at a rate of about 2.5 quintillion bytes of data each day. And while this data has created new opportunities, revenue streams, and other value, it brings with it a unique set of challenges and security risks, including increased risk of cybercrime and concerns about data privacy.
