Just makes sense to me

Just a quick blurb from an exchange I was having with a very smart privacy diva that was worth sharing:
Data is an asset. You know. I know. CPO's know. Some CISO's know. soooooome lawyers know. Greed is an
excellent motivator that is not antithetical to ethics & this notion may be the primary way forward in these challenging times. The Cloud only serves to amplify this simple fact.
Fact is, Grace Hopper was right. Data ultimately will be on the balance sheet as it generates predictable outcomes and can be associated with profit or failure.
How to measure it? How to audit your Cloud provider to be sure they make a good accounting of it? This is where the normative value of best practices & standards will help us. This is where GRC measurement tools are critical. (By the way, in my mind "Governance" inherently includes "Compliance" and "Risk" but the acronym does persist so there you have it.)
I am very interested in being a part of these threads coming together to create something so practical and irresistible that it will seem obvious to the naysayers.
Just a thought while I procrastinate some more...
