Companies Globally Are Working Towards Cyber Security & Personal Data Protection Standards. Are you?
As businesses harness technology to advance their businesses, enhancing digital safety becomes a key priority. Many of the issues affecting this cyber world are due in part to its rapid growth in both applications and users. The digital economy is now entirely dependent on the Internet. While organisations and individuals are increasingly connected in the business marketplace and day to day, our connections have also became more complex. Experiencing a data breach affects not just a security department but in fact the entire organization including its employees and stakeholders. Data protection and privacy management plays a pivotal role in key business operations, functional development as well as finances related losses, because data breaches affect various aspects of an organization’s life cycle.
While cyber risks are becoming more apparent, it is important for organisation to take precautionary measures in protecting data, preventing data breaches so as to avoid unnecessary damages to company reputation, and to meet regulatory requirements. Cybersecurity is part of information security that relates to the protection of critical systems and sensitive information in our computers, networks, programs and data against unauthorized access. While Cybersecurity covers safety against digital attacks, data protection covers a set of issues related to data storage, management and access.
