New methods of securing networks, systems and data are going to be best sought within the context of operational risk management, which is less about compliance than performance. It's human nature: People want to know what their obligations are. Give me the rules, and I will meet them. This is referred to as the "compliance culture." There is another way to fulfill the business mission, though. Your first concern is the good of the business -- so for the sake of the business, you try to improve your activities in every way.

This article is right on the money.
The idea of ORM isn't new but time and time again we see examples of companies making the same mistakes over and over.
You'd think that after the VA laptop , AOL, Visa incidents, people would start to get the idea that although there are risks involved with business, there are plenty of measures that can be taken to avoid certain ones. For example, if AOL had chosen to encrypt the data they wanted to provide researchers, and only giving them access to decrypt the data, we wouldn't have fun into this problem.
Although not all business choose to be compliant, there are a good many reasons why it's good for businesses to consider it. It provides the right framework for a less-faulty foundation upon which to build upon, decreasing ORM. There are software available that help with compliance and businesses should definitely look into such solutions.

Given the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant, if my employer requires me to return to the company's location in 2021, I will...
Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
