In the age of digital information, everything is in the cloud. Anyone from anywhere can access the data due to the vulnerability of such systems. Hence, it is paramount to secure business activities not just in the physical office space, but also on the digital side of operations.
Aside from having a clean desk policy, businesses should also beef up their cybersecurity measures because of the data that’s available in their database. It’s common for some industries to seek IT support. Data such as personal information, demographics, and even sensitive details like payment information are targets of security breaches.
Surely, it’s not news to you that there have been massive hacks to popular businesses like Yahoo! and Uber, as this has made a huge and negative effect on the business’ customers and the business reputation itself.
