How to process company information and data securely across your business

Whether you are a small start-up or a large corporation, data security is an all-or-nothing business, yet many of us assume that having antivirus software and a standard firewall is more than enough to keep our data safe.

If your data security measures don’t work together in sync, your organisation’s sensitive information could still be severely at risk.

In this article we take a look at the overall strategy that’s required to keep data safe in every corner of your business while giving you some tips for implementing this far-reaching approach to cyber security.

the 3 keys to processing business data securely

Considering how damaging a data leak or breach can be to your business, both financially and in terms of reputation, there’s no time to lose when it comes to implementing an organisation-wide data security policy. But what should it be?

They are three basic elements that form the foundation of a good data security approach: team education, secure cloud storage, and data encryption.

  1. Train your team to spot and deal with threats. Company-wide education about email threats, a comprehensive data security policy, and a cyber incident response plan can all put your team in a position to respond swiftly to cyberattacks and prevent them from occurring. Ensure that your team know how to identify scams and phishing attacks and instil a sense of responsibility in each member.
  2. Get secure cloud storage. There’s no substitute for safe online data storage. Taking information off your physical devices and keeping it safe in the cloud is non-negotiable in 2022.
  3. Encrypt your data. Opt for cloud storage that uses advanced data encryption and activate encryption on all the apps and communication channels your business uses.
