Lets see if some context can be spun here

Quote:
locations across enterprise IT and healthcare organisations in the U.S.

So we will say these are important locations.

What is missing then is the type of devices and data.
And yes, we can take into account that some data at first might seem harmless, but when linked can give some interesting insight.

Possible low risk example:
A bunch of "dumb" sensors could be setup which indicate "i am still on" + some unique id. Cheap, low power that can attach to anything.

Then internal database which links number to some meaningful human is behind some protection.
Risk is someone intercepting data and possible sending out "still on" info when the device is off.

Keep in mind, Data and Information are separate words.
