The five-point plan for data privacy & business

On Friday I attended a talk at Data Protection 2016 that was all about – you guessed it – data, but specifically how businesses can continue to thrive in the ever-evolving data economy.   

The talk from Ctrl-Shift CEO Liz Brandt covered five key action points that business and government need to tackle together in order to avert a future crisis.

I’m going to cover them in detail in this post.

SSL certificates will soon be free for all websites

Security is one of the most important topics for any company doing business in some form on the internet.

With the liabilities associated with data breaches and hacking incidents only increasing, few companies can afford to ignore website security.


Don't be fooled by the name: cyber security is about people, not technology

When you hear the phrase 'cyber security', what springs to mind?

On the face of it, cyber security is often assumed to be purely technical: it could be described as protecting IT from viruses, malware and other threats that just keep growing in the digital age.

To take it one step further, cyber security is about protecting information that we create, share and store in ever-advancing ways from those threats.

When we really think about the role, value and use of information, we start to see that cyber security is about much more than purely technical issues.

However, it's when we look at the threats, and how those threats become reality, that we can truly understand that cyber security is, at its heart, about people more than it is about technology.
