    The Weak Link In Information Security

    Data loss and theft has the potential to affect all of us – from private individuals to small businesses and multinational corporations. While awareness of the threat posed by a data breach is increasing, there is still a lack of understanding of the many ways in which such a breach can occur and, most importantly, little awareness of the often simple steps that can be taken to prevent personal and business data loss. Whilst the vast majority of companies have taken some action to protect themselves through the installation of security software and hardware such measures, while important, only address part of the data security threat.

    One core area of data security which is often overlooked is the very real possibility of a visual data security breach – the potential for sensitive, personal information and data to be seen, captured and utilised by unauthorised individuals. These risks are present wherever data is displayed on screen – whether that’s inside or outside the office – and on any device, from smartphones to tablets and from laptops to desktops. Facing more frequent and more innovative data attacks, organisations must ensure that the defences they have in place protect against all potential data breaches and not just some.

     The cost to businesses of data loss and cyber-crime is increasing rapidly. Europol has reported that the cost of cybercrime to companies worldwide is €750 billion a year (1); a survey by Symantec and the Ponemon institute published in June 2011 found that 84% of British, French and German businesses had suffered some form of data breach (2); and in March 2012 the U.S. Office of Management and Budget revealed that a total of 107,655 security incidents were reported in to it in 2011 (3).
