In a survey about their top priorities, corporate finance leaders and teams in the technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) industry ranked data security and privacy second to none, followed by enhanced data analytics and embracing new technologies.

The survey results affirm many of today’s business realities: Data is a valuable corporate asset that needs to be produced and analyzed accurately, but also safeguarded at all costs. Investments in technology and analytics are essential to nearly all business functions. And, keeping a relentless focus on these priorities remains a challenge, given the pandemic, evolving cyber threats and the intensifying regulatory climate.

Many TMT finance leaders are addressing these challenges head-on and, at the same time, looking to maximize data quality and business value in evolving areas such as environmental, social and governance (ESG), where monitoring, managing and reporting on all forms of ESG-related performance metrics are growing imperatives.

The recent insights paper, “Security, Data, Analytics and ESG Top 2021 Priorities for TMT Finance Leaders,” examines these prevailing issues and more. An infographic  captures the main highlights of the survey.
