On an interview, rather than ask what will make "me" successful in this role, instead ask what has made others successful in this role in the past. Take the interview out of the hypothetical and into the historical.

Top 3 Takeaways From cyberSecure 2017
  • Companies, no matter the type or size, need to be thinking about cyber attacks; 50 percent of cyber breaches are inside threat actors.
  • Amazon Web Services (AWS) holds the largest percentage of “cloud” market share at 42 percent with the second largest being Azure, holding 14 percent of the market. Although these entities control the market, there is still a shared responsibilities model, meaning they sell the services to allow you to secure yourselves, but don't necessarily monitor your networks or notify when you've been hacked.
  • With the lack of federal regulations in place, large corporations housing sensitive data, such as Amazon, can label something an “outage.” Doing so keeps them from having to notify authorities/agencies otherwise required. By classifying the incident as something other than a hack, there is less negative impact, press, etc.

Security protocols don't yet have an industry-wide standard that companies can rely upon. This may mean that there will be first-mover advantages, or it could mean that the market is so fragmented that there will be many players. This can be good for investors because it creates plenty of consolidation opportunities.

Compensation for Privacy Professionals, often individuals who spent much of the early 2000s specializing in ESI, has increased notably and consistently over the last three years.

Top 3 Compensation Takeaways From The IAPP 2017 Salary Survey
  • In 2017, the median salary for privacy professionals globally is $115,000, an increase of more than $4,000 from 2015. The mean salary is higher, $123,000, reflecting an overall trend of increasing pay over the last decade.
  • In the European Union, the median salary is $95,800, a healthy climb from the median salary of $89,739 in 2015.
  • Another consistent trend is that privacy professionals holding at least one IAPP certification earn markedly higher salaries than those without one. In the U.S., those with at least one IAPP certification earn on average an additional $25,000 in annual salary ($135,000 vs. $109,400), and those with multiple certifications average more than $35,000 per year over the salary of their non-certified peers ($145,100 vs. $109,400).

A company’s biggest asset and competitive advantage is the aggregation and analysis of the data they collect.

Top 3 Takeaways From The TIP (Technology In Practice) Conference In Toronto, Ontario, Canada
  • The Canadian eDiscovery and Information Governance market is growing and maturing quickly. Talent is hungry for professional development, job title and compensation realignment, and opportunity to make an impact within a firm, corporation, or service provider.
  • Canadians may be socially liberal, but they tend to be fiscally conservative—especially when it comes to e-discovery spend, whether for talent or technology.
  • Relativity does not yet dominate the Canadian market in the same way that it does the U.S. There is still widespread use of tools like Summation, Ipro, Ringtail, Venio, and more. Relativity is gaining adoption quickly, though, largely due to the vendor growth in Toronto with new players entering the market to compete with Commonwealth Legal’s undeniable dominance in the area.
