When first looking at this challenge, the major hurdle was identifying all of the locations of the data in question and then ensuring all of the appropriate best-in-class protection mechanisms were in place (least privilege, database encryption, etc.).  We implemented processes to categorize our data and used some SaaS tools to help develop a repeatable process for handling the data appropriately.

Restricting the data to only those who need access.  This can be an Administrative burden.  Our main concern is data leak or where someone inadvertently sends the data to the wrong person.  The downsides of data leaks are well documented and the reputation of the firm will be at risk if we get it wrong.
