Cyber Crime Security

With the new GDPR being enforced on 28th May 2018, all businesses should be making it a high priority to improve their data security.

The punishments can be severe, for example Talk Talk’s fine of £400,000 by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) would be over £50m under GDPR.

How to achieve privacy?

Being a victim of cyber crime can have a devastating effect on people’s lives. Whether it is your data or data belonging to somebody else the consequences can be personal, corporate or even life threatening. In achieving data privacy, controls must be implemented to ensure the data is protected at all stages of its lifetime.

  • Assessing the impact of a breach
  • Determining if your security controls are adequate

Why cryptography is so important for your data

Cryptography is one of the most important techniques applied in computer security which can ensure the confidentiality of data, the integrity or correctness of the data and provide methods to control access to the data.

It is when these security methods have not been applied or have been applied incorrectly that a system is left wide open to vulnerabilities leading to what is commonly known as a cyber attack.

The secret to applying cryptography correctly is to protect the secret keys and data while at rest, in transit or when being processed
