Why Do Companies Bother to Protect Customer Data?

Privacy 0

Curseyoukhan writes "The upside to protecting consumer data is practically nonexistent, and the downside is barely any greater for the bottom line of most companies. Your business could have state-of-the-art protection or you could have the barest of bare bones security, and it wouldn't make any difference in the consumer-choice process. Furthermore the overwhelming majority of consumers could care less about privacy anyway. So why not just protect the stuff that's actually important to your business?"
