Data security for the masses.

Stonewood Electronics : 23 November, 2007  (Technical Article)
Stonewood Electronics explains the need for data security at all levels from corporations to home users.
To prevent significant data loss; all organizations need to establish strict security policies and invest in appropriate IT security devices.

Due to recent data losses involving nearly half of the UK population, UK families must now vigilantly scrutinize all banking activity and remain watchful for signs of identity fraud.

Like everybody else, Stonewood employees have recently been affected by national losses and will have anxious months ahead as they monitor their finances. As widely respected data encryption specialists that provide real results.', at Stonewood we know only too well how often data goes missing and, conversely, how simple steps can ensure that data is managed and controlled.

One in eight UK laptops will be stolen. Memory sticks, CD's and portable drives are almost expected to be mislaid. As IT technology becomes evermore entwined in all aspects of our lives, we need to halt the, at times, lackadaisical approach to data security in this country.

Stonewood CEO, Brendan Forster explained, "Unfortunately, in our business we hear about data going missing every day. This often causes disastrous consequences to company reputation and individual security."

Mr Forster continued: "I believe there is a moral and professional obligation on behalf of data custodians (whether commercial or governmental) to adopt and enforce an appropriate security policy which involves, at the very least, encryption of all data that is taken outside of a secure environment. This security policy must be a board and senior government level responsibility and a fundamental part of running any business or indeed country."

Government and commercial organizations agree that all data needs to be protected, yet stories of data loss catastrophes continue to pervade the news. Consumers are already wondering how many thefts must occur before legal changes enforce comprehensive data protection at all levels. With 27million affected this week alone, the pressure is on the government to protect its people.
