Have today's privacy policies made us a society of liars?

Prove It: Prove policy compliance with ongoing monitoring, detailed reporting, and granular incident tracking. Effective tools produce detailed reports of preventative and corrective actions taken to ensure content is uploaded, stored, classified, and secured in accordance with information governance policies. Be sure to combine human review with automated process to ensure risk report accuracy, confidently reporting on risk levels at any point in time as well as demonstrating to chief security personnel progress in reducing overall organizational risk.
In our information-driven society, the amount of a data humankind creates doubles every two years; providing a flood of new information to manage and store. Sensitive information goes beyond Personal Identifiable Information (PII)—it encompasses calendars, schematics, addresses, and anything else that could pose a risk if placed in the wrong hands. By taking the outlined approach to privacy, we can break away from being a society of liars and create a more truthful interaction between enterprises and the public.
