Secure Data is a critical component for all businesses to aid smooth day-to-day operations and assist management in decision making. However, as our use of technology grows, it is becoming increasingly important to ensure your hardware and data are secure.

 

In a report published in August 2018 by the market research firm Juniper Research, it is predicted that the number of stolen digital records will rise from an anticipated 12 billion records this year to 146 billion records in 2023 – a 175 per cent increase. Being aware of data breaches is now paramount when storing personal or commercial information.

 

Often businesses spend a great deal of time and of money to ensure data is secure when equipment is in use, however data security can be overlooked when the equipment is no longer required. And remember, even if your hardware devices become faulty, or stop working completely, the hard drive can often be recovered and the accompanying data extracted by data thieves.

 

IT equipment often contains confidential and sensitive information and no one wants their data to fall into the wrong hands. Many organisations hold data containing customer details or product details, which should be secure and not enter the public domain. Such data breaches can lead to irreversible damage to a company’s brand, loss of revenue and in some cases prosecution.
