In most businesses lots of information is now held electronically – accounts records, personnel records, sales and marketing information, customer lists, product specifications and drawings and the ubiquitous e-mail records and it is fair to say that the loss or corruption of this data would be immensely damaging, and in extreme cases fatal, to your business.
Amazingly, many companies treat the security of their data as less important than the small amount of petty cash they keep in a locked tin. Of course, the loss of a petty cash tin would soon be noticed but how quickly would you realise if your entire customer list was copied or your manufacturing software was corrupted. Ensuring that you have an effective process for protecting your data is vital.
Information security management involves putting in place the measures necessary to eliminate or minimise the impact that security threats could have on your company.
