The technology industry has changed a lot over the past 10 years with the move from on-prem systems to the cloud. With that came new types of challenges from a privacy and security perspective. Controlling access to data was no longer just about putting up a firewall, but you needed to know who and what was accessing the data at all times for audit purposes.
