Is your data secure?

Is your data really safe?

 

The last few weeks have been shocking for security after three of the largest companies in the UK suffered severe attacks.

Incidents like these go to show the importance of having state of the art security and encryption in place which goes beyond what is called for in the Data Protection Act. 

This is essential if you want to give your customers faith in your brand.

Our experience shows that if you have a Disaster Recovery and Prevention plan in place, prospective clients are more likely to choose you over a competitor.

For these reasons alone, finding out how secure your systems are can be well worth it.

This leads into the ethical implications of having a strong system in place, but that will be covered in a future blog.

If you are looking for more information about computer security, or you’re unsure how secure you are please get in touch and one of our experts will be happy to help

The above thoughts were inspired from reading the below detailing some of the information about the Talk Talk, British Gas and Marks and Spencer data breaches
