Security and Data Ethics

Data security and Data Ethics, why do we have these two areas together? The security of your data is key to how you care for your organisations data assets and your client data. In fact today the client data is seen by many as the most precious assets an organisation can have. So in this service we offer not only practical help around data security but also help you articulate how the care of your data and how you use it demonstrates your organisations’ commitment to how much you care for your customers!

Why care about your data?

There is little doubt that data security is and will be a massive focus for any business and organisation going forward. This will be a great importance to C level as well as the individual resource working face to face with your clients. Resent figures showed the fines imposed on the big corporations around GDPR; Google with a 50m € fine and BA with a 22m € fine. These fine are not and will not remain with just the massive global corporate organisations, they will hit the smaller businesses too. 

One could argue that the fines are not the real long term impact but in fact the credibility of the organisation is, for the fact is that they will be perceived as companies that do not care about their data – their data that is about their customers! 

There are many technical companies out there wanting to sell your their services and solutions. But also you need to consider that the greater % of security breaches are in fact internal and many done completely unintentionally. So what do you have in place to protect your organisation – processes and training to help your resources protect your assets? This Service is about assessing and helping you build a wholistic and ethical solutions to this vital area!
