Security and Legislation

Almost every business that trades will use electronic means at some point. At the very lowest level there are the applications that run on mobile smart devices through to accounting and communication software on laptops and desktops. At some point businesses will interact with a variety of data and security concerns and understanding their approach to that is important.

There are some very important questions that you should already be asking yourself:

  • Do you know how your systems are secured?
  • Do you have good processes for accessing the systems?
  • Do you follow the changing best practices for securing your data and systems?
  • Do you know what those practices are?

It seems that every day there is another story about data breaches and security concerns; about increasing numbers of targetted assaults or rogue software. Having a strategy to deal with this may be out of the reach of many organisations. Navigating the myraid of solutions may seem like a monumental task that will be impossible to complete. At the same time you need to act to make sure you are compliant with lesiglation to ensure your business processes are acceptable and affordable.
