Every day businesses are under constant threat without them even realising it. By that it is meant their precious business data, vital for running their business, may be on a knife’s edge away from being lost, corrupted, damaged or even stolen. Imagine the consequences to any businesses’ future if that were to happen.
The thought of something that catastrophic is barely worth thinking about. However businesses have had this nightmare happen to them. For example, a recent study showed that 90% of business that lost their core data for more than 10 days went bankrupt within a year!
Not only could the business or important data be lost, but amendments to the Data Protection Act, which came into force in April 2011, could lead to data controllers and the businesses they work for being liable for up to £500,000 for breaches of the act. That is because they have a responsibility to their customers, employees and their business to ensure that their data is in safe hands.
