Data & Web Security

Data security is a set of standards and technologies that protect data from intentional or accidental destruction, modification or disclosure. Data security can be applied using a range of techniques and technologies, including administrative controls, physical security, logical controls, organizational standards, and other safeguarding techniques that limit access to unauthorized or malicious users or processes.

Why is Data Security Important?

All businesses today deal in data to a degree. From the banking giants dealing in massive volumes of personal and financial data to the one-man business storing the contact details of his customers on a mobile phone, data is at play in companies both large and small.

The primary aim of data security is to protect the data that an organization collects, stores, creates, receives or transmits. Compliance is also a major consideration. It doesn't matter which device, technology or process is used to manage, store or collect data, it must be protected. Data breaches can result in litigation cases and huge fines, not to mention damage to an organization's reputation. The importance of shielding data from security threats is more important today than it has ever been.
