A current study states the facts: “No company is protected” – Data theft causes billions of losses!
Even within the core area of data theft – the IT department – the tangible security needs are rather small.
Most of the companies use basic equipment, like firewalls, password policies for all devices and high security standards in general. But active prevention still has to be improved everywhere.
An unrecognised danger
The last few years have shown a steady rise in risk of losing vital company data due to new technological advances. The current weak spot, after eliminating most of the uncertainties introduced by the world wide web, are the inconspicuous USB and other hardware I/O ports. It is laughably easy to connect any kind of portable storage device (USB stick, mobiles, MP3 player etc.) to a computer, hidden in plain sight and disconnected again within seconds…their storage now filled to the brim with valuable information, thanks to modern engineering. Even accidental data loss by your own employees in form of removable storage devices disappearing in good faith could have bad consequences for your company. Everyone can open unencrypted files containing secret, sensitive or protect-worthy data.
