Insider Magazine, the well-known business publication, played host recently to a Security Round Table to which M247 Technical Director Chris Byrd was invited. A number of other data security experts also contributed to the discussion and one or two business users who are recent “Cloud converts” also attended and explained why they thought data security is crucial to their business.
Chris commented on the growing data security threats, particularly with increased use of smart phones and personal devices being brought into the workplace and drew everyone’s attention to the fact that data crimes are commonly committed without penalty or punishment. He also said that companies shouldn’t simply throw money at their security problems. Often there has to be a seed change in the company ethos before improvements are realised.
