When it comes to your data security do you know who is in charge? Would you know who to go to or what to do should there be a data security breach? If the answer is ‘no’ to both of those questions then it is time to call a meeting.

Data security is of paramount importance, whatever your business.  If you even have to question it then it is time to step up your IT security measures.  So how do you go about this? Well there a several things that you will want to put in place as soon as possible:

  • If you have a data centre or computer room you need to know who has access
  • Assign someone to take charge and care of this room
  • Change any key codes on a regular basis
  • Keep up-to-date anti virus software
  • Have good firewall procedures
  • Let your employees know the consequences of internal data theft
  • Speak to a data management company
