Data security is the process of protecting data from unauthorized access and corruption using data encryption and key management practices.

Businesses around the world are investing heavily in cyber defense capabilities to protect their critical assets. Whether an enterprise needs to protect a brand, intellectual capital, and customer information or provide controls for critical infrastructure, the means for incident detection and response to protecting organizational interests have three common elements: people, processes, and technology.

Computer Forensic Specialists can help to safeguard the reputation of your organisation by ensuring the information on your customers and prospects is kept secure through the implementation of proper responsibilities, processes and appropriate technology. Poor data quality processes can result in costly implications for organisations if the data they hold is poorly kept and therefore unsecure.

 

Ways of securing your data include:

Data Encryption

Converting the data into a code that cannot be easily read without the key that unlocks it.


Data Masking

Masking certain areas of data so anyone without the required authorisation cannot look at it.


Data Erasure

Ensuring that data which is no longer needed is completely removed and cannot be recovered by unauthorised people.


Data Backup

Creating copies of important data so it can be recovered if the original version is lost.


Different countries have varying laws and regulations relating to data storage, which could result in your data being seized without your consent. We can advise you on GDPR-compliant UK-based data storage solutions.
