Invention of computers has revolutionized communication and reduced the world to a global village. This has changed the way people do business and handle information. However, with the globe connected to the internet, it has encouraged the growth of cyber crimes, which have seen many lose colossal amounts of money. For this reason, data security has become one of the most emphasized subjects for businesses today.
Companies thrive in secrets. What you should ask yourself is, how much you stand to lose if that which you know, gets in the wrong hands. This applies to all business records stored in desktops and servers. You should grade the information in hierarchy of sensitivity and risks involved in case of loss. This can be the guide on how the information is handled in your organization.
It is useful to educate workers in the need to handle company information securely, since these stand higher chances of misusing it. In case of any breaches, strict measures should be taken on the culprits. On the same, new employees must be trained before they are assigned any official duty.
