…are you sitting on a data security ticking time bomb?
With the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) now in full force across the EU (and being mirrored by the UK with the Data Protection Act 2018), businesses found not to have disclosed data breaches or protected their customer’s data, face enormous fines and long term business disruption.
With valuable credentials being bought and sold on the dark web for serious money, significant data breaches – often involving millions of records – seem to be more and more commonplace.
Of course, not everybody who finds a USB drive is a criminal or has bad intentions, but in the wrong hands a lost or stolen USB can have immediate and permanent consequences.
Lose an unencrypted USB and you could face…
- Huge fines from the ICO (Information Commissioners Office) – Heathrow were recently fined £120,000 for losing an unencrypted USB containing sensitive data
- Reputational damage
- Loss of customers
- Financial losses
- Loss of information
- Staff churn
