Global privacy advisory market topping $3B
How much do companies around the world spend each year on data privacy services to fix the problems we read about in the headlines every day? Nobody as far as I can tell has published an answer to this question. So this month I set out to pull together the best available data points on the market.

Defining the market
For starters, I think three segments comprise the sector: privacy advisory services, privacy operations and security of personal information.
