Data Security Standards
The continuing evolution of computer systems has given rise to a predominantly, technologically driven work environment. The transition from physical, paper-based procedures to online processes has modified the way in which we as a society, approach the issue of data security – including secure file transfer.
Organisations that process and store what would be classed as ‘Personal Information’ (e.g. financial status, race, sexual orientation, health etc.) are now subject to stringent governmental controls, legislative laws and standards. If these companies choose not comply with applicable laws, not only will they have to tackle loss of customer trust when data is leaked, severe financial penalties will be incurred.
