Risk Management, Cyber and Data Security Services

As an intelligent business person, you already know every business needs to manage risks. But many companies make the mistake of thinking their greatest risks are external ones like burglary or flooding — they underestimate the danger of internal failures in data security and data protection.Every business, regardless of size, needs to consider using cyber security services .

Data Security

Do you believe only big businesses with lots of customer data get targeted by cyber-criminals? Think an identity thief would only be interested in the richest customers, or that if no customers have complained to you then no data has been stolen?

Worse, do you tell yourself the threat is outside your business and therefore outside your control?

None of those things are true.

SMEs are often the target of cyber-crime because their security is more vulnerable than that of bigger corporations. To protect the company, you need to:

  • Stay up-to-date with data security news and internal reports
  • Create and follow suitable security and backup procedures
  • Monitor security hazards, regulation and compliance
  • Track your digital data
  • Manage access to onsite data and protect data taken offsite
  • Correctly dispose of data, documents, and equipment that stores data

Data Protection

If you breach the Data Protection Act , even by accident, your company could suffer strong penalties. To comply with the Act, the data you hold about any person must be:

Collected and used fairly and lawfully

Collected and used only for limited, explicitly stated purposes

Collected and used only when relevant, and not excessively

Handled according to the individual’s data protection rights

Kept accurate

Kept for no longer than necessary

Kept safe from unauthorised access and accidental loss

Kept within the UK unless you can protect data transferred abroad

Shared with the individual if they ask you to do so
