Digitisation and cloud computing mean that employees have the potential to access some of their employer’s most valuable assets — sensitive data and intellectual property. Teams need clear guidelines on what information should be most protected.
When we interact and transact with our customers, we often ask them to tell us about themselves. Registration forms, surveys, transaction histories — these are all ways of gathering information. When we collect and store personal information about our customers, we need to be mindful of privacy.
We share data and digital information with the teams and people we work with just about every day. Sharing data is so second nature that we can sometimes overlook what type of data we’re working with and what the most appropriate way to share it is.
Many of us can relate to the rush of adrenalin and quickening pulse rate we get when we hear a particular notification ping or text message tone. It’s the one that signals a production or cyber security problem, and it demands our immediate attention.
While it might not entirely take away the physical reaction, knowing you have an incident response framework in place can be a huge help in minimising those notification jitters.
Can you remember a day in recent memory when you didn’t use the internet? Us neither. We spend so much time online that it’s easy to take a lot of things about it for granted — and one of those things is web security.
