The Business Need for Encryption
Despite years of technological development in the area of encrypting information, the challenge of keeping our information assets secured, whilst at the same time allowing the users of that information to have flexible access to it, still exists.
If data is not encrypted, both when it is stationary (e.g. stored on a hard disk, USB stick) and when it is in motion (e.g. as an email attachment), then there is a real risk of the loss of that data. Such a loss can lead to a number of serious consequences:
- Breach of data protection act and resultant fines
- Breach of industry regulations e.g. FSA
- Loss of sensitive corporate information
- Resultant brand and reputation damage for the organisation concerned
In order to protect your organisation from the risk of data loss, you need to look at two things:
- Do you have robust security policies in place that tackle all possible data loss scenarios, and are these policies regularly audited by a suitable third party?
- Have you implemented tools and systems which complement these policies, by automatically preventing data loss?
The latest encryption technologies can securely enable wired and wireless networking, mobile communications, email messaging and sensitive file transfers. NetDef works with key technology partners that provide robust solutions that are safe, simple and affordable to deploy – ensuring that only the right people see the right data at the right time.
