Personal data and assets are a target for fraudsters and criminals. Data breaches, leaks and hacks can cause irreparable damage to businesses and erode customer confidence.
Despite a widespread increase in the speed in which breaches are recognised and dealt with, significant breaches continue to be a major threat to end users of Public, Private and Third sector organisations in the UK.
As with any organisation regulators need to follow ISO guidelines and Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to protect the public against data loss due to the seriously improper handling of information.
