When you think of business assets many do not think about "data."  Data is a key element to business success.  It tracks where you have been, where you want to go, what you want to do, and without that knowledge the collective findings of your data would make your business go back to the stone age. What would happen to their business if they lost sensitive information?  Based on a Trend Micro-sponsored Ponemon Institute study, more than "78% of organizations have suffered from at least one data breach over the past two years." 1 Who in your business is responsible for the loss of data?  Do you have a plan to prevent the five main security threats to your business data.

  • Employee negligence 
  • Small businesses lack of protection
  • Employee mobility 
  • Failer to properly back-up data
  • Lack of data security 
HOW CAN YOUR COMPANY PROTECT ITSELF AGAINST A DATA BREACH

• Close your organization's doors to malware.
• Educated employees on the importance of keeping data safe.
• Teach the dangers of social networking "over sharing"
• Require passwords to your systems that are strong, and change them often.
• Implement a data hierarchy that requires authorizations, and job level security clearances.
• Knowing is half the battle know your options.
