IT, Privacy & Data Security
In the span of a few years, data protection & privacy has grown to become a top issue for companies and governments. The use of mobile devices with personal, identifiable location information and cloud services is substantially increasing. Social media are also playing an ever more prominent role in daily life. Data collection by governments and government services, too, is becoming ever more important to guaranteeing the safety of citizens in today’s turbulent world.

Legal protection is a must
Because the amount of personal information is increasing on the Internet by the day and the data stored in corporate databases is continually expanding, the risk that all of this data will end up in the wrong hands is high. This prompts people to use encryption, web filtering, safely managed file transfers and legal protection.
You run risks
Tightened (EU) legislation and regulations are forcing many organisations to minimise their data & privacy risks proactively. If they fail to do this, then legal prosecution can be the consequence. Government oversight authorities can also impose hefty fines for careless actions. And, perhaps even more important, your reputation and brand can be put on the line. This can have consequences for the trust that clients and employees place in your organisation.
