Data Protection

How quickly could you recover your data?

Do you know how long it would take your organisation to recover should you experience a data breach?

Data breaches are affecting organisations big and small and familiarising yourself so that your data is not left vulnerable is a great first step in securing your organisations systems. Whether data is stolen for malicious intent or an organisation inadvertently leaves data unprotected and exposed, you are responsible and could face huge fines and reputational damage if your data is compromised.

We have put together this simple infographic around data loss and recovery to help you to understand the impact it could have, should you not have a data protection plan in place.

How to Reduce the Risk of a Personal Data Breach

Strengthen your passwords

Weak passwords will leave you vulnerable to an attack. Help keep your accounts secure with a mixture of letters, numbers and symbols and never use the same password on multiple accounts.

Password managers are useful when it comes to keeping passwords in one place and enabling two-factor authentication (2FA) is always recommended.

R

Only grant access when necessary

Only ever grant access to accounts and systems to those people who need it.

Restrict copying, pasting, editing and viewing rights on documents where necessary and remember to always remove and change logins to accounts after an employee has left.

i

Remove all paperwork on desks

Enforcing a clear desk policy within your office is recommended to ensure personal data is not accidentally exposed to other employees or visitors.
From folders and files and sticky notes, they should all be removed from your desk.

It is also essential if you are thinking about getting ISO27001 certified.
