Staff 'need to be educated' about data security

As the technological world continues to expand and companies increasingly shift their operations online, much emphasis has been placed on the need to ensure firms do not leave themselves exposed to cyber theft.
And while business insurance and disaster recovery solutions are able to provide a strong safeguard against the financial and logistical consequences that can result from networks becoming compromised, one expert explains that educating staff about security can also be an effective measure.
"[Companies will need to] test and review any data security policies - so you could set a data security policy today and it's likely to be out of date in a few months," said Matt Torrens, director at SproutIT.co.uk.
If companies are to properly defend themselves against the threat of suffering losses and breaks in continuity, it seems that ensuring employees are well aware of the appropriate data protection procedures will play a vital role in preventing any potentially damaging breaches.
