In a world of malware, viruses, cyber criminals and more, security and compliance is a big deal. The constant publication of high profile data breaches only encourages the fact that absolutely nothing is off limits when it comes to security hacking.

The European Parliament are enforcing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25th May 2018. If businesses don’t meet the compliancy criteria, they could face severe penalties of up to 4% of their worldwide turnover. Not a risk any business should be willing to take.

Data on the move

With the rise of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) in business, it is important to ensure that personal data is protected in case a device is lost or stolen.

In a BYOD environment, it is essential that personal data is appropriately secured so that it cannot be accessed in the event of loss or theft.

Encryption is a means of ensuring that data can only be accessed by authorised users and comes in many different forms and offers protection under different circumstances.

  • Full disk encryption - all the data on the device is encrypted
  • File encryption – individual files can be encrypted
  • Password protection – Stop intruders making changes to stolen data however this may not stop a thief reading the data.



Large enterprises aren’t the only target when it comes to cyber crime

Did you know only 31% of small businesses take active measures to guard themselves against security breaches?

Seen as the perfectly unprepared target, small and medium business’ are becoming the prime focus for hackers and cybercriminals due to their lack of knowledge and resources when it comes to keeping their IT systems secure.

A risky situation to be in considering smaller businesses will find it harder to repair the damage if their data is compromised. The cost of recovery is staggering and in most cases, it leads to the shutdown of businesses.
