It recently made the news that the All Blacks’ hotel room had been bugged, and barely a week goes by without news of some kind of industrial espionage taking place. Big businesses, public institutions and companies working on elements of the national infrastructure all take industrial espionage very seriously indeed. Smaller businesses often do not consider it to be something that could affect them, but is it really worth taking a risk with your corporate data?
We have heard stories of governmental tenders being sold on by rogue employees, resulting in the company being undercut by its competitors and losing business as a result. Just think about how valuable your information is: what could you do if you had access to your competitors’ customer contacts databases and the prices they charge them? It does not just happen to big companies in the public eye, and what may be inconvenient for a corporation could be catastrophic for an SME.
Keeping Data Safe and Secure
The good news is that information security is easy to control, and simply requires the right mixture of governance, management of policies and also the right software tools to prevent, discourage or trace any leaks that might occur. Your data should be stored securely, restricted to those who need to access it, and protected from prying eyes. An IT security expert will soon find any gaps in your policies or software that could be exploited by external hackers or even your own employees – and plug them for you fast.
