Data Security

Why is data security essential for your business?

Data is a double edged sword: it creates business value, and represents a significant liability. Minimizing the liability associated with data loss in a cost-effective way is what data security is all about.

Data security should be among the top priorities on your continuity planning list.There is no one service that can ensure your data’s integrity and security – it takes an ongoing, organised process to protect and keep your data secure.  Here are some of the more important parts of that process:

 

 

A business that incorporates these industry-best practices into their overall business strategy will be positioned to keep its most valuable asset – its data – intact.

Security is a Process, Not a Project

The sources for security breaches have increased exponentially over the past few years. Long gone are the days when a firewall and some anti-virus software on user machines were enough.   Malware and hackers have become much more sophisticated, and it takes a comprehensive and dynamic approach to keep pace with all the attack vectors.

 

The consequences of a Data Security breach are rarely far from a CIO’s or CTO’s mind. Take one of the most dramatic cases of recent years as an example. When hackers compromised data for around 77 million Sony gaming and entertainment accounts the attack left users off-line for more than two months and cost Sony $170 million. Sony has since created a position for Chief Information Security Officer.

 

But security events like these are not simply one-off occurrences. There are many examples of security breaches of all scales and types happening around the world, and while it is impossible to guarantee that your business will never experience a data compromise, taking the proper steps to safeguard your data can pay large dividends over the long run.
