Every business is reliant on its data. Whether proprietary information about upcoming products, important legal or financial records, or customer details stored in a CRM database, the very survival of a business depends on its data remaining accurate and safe from intruders, both from within and outside the company.
With cloud computing, mobile devices and the emerging Internet of Things creating increasingly sophisticated security concerns, no business can afford to put its data safety on the back burner. A recent Symantec study found that data breaches due to malicious or criminal attacks now cost Australian companies an average of AU$175 per compromised record – and that Australia now leads the world in total number of records compromised per breach, at 34,249.
In this e-book, we take an in-depth look at commercial data security, including the threat and impact of cybercrime, the latest mobility trends and why mobile computing requires a seismic shift in how business leaders think about security. We also explore data-storage options in the cloud and identify some best-practice tips that businesses can use to keep their data secure and protected.
