As data continues to become a valuable commodity, businesses need to take extra steps to ensure that sensitive information is locked down, tight.
For the retail and manufacturing industries, that can include large caches of consumer data – putting them in the firing line of GDPR and PCI, and ensuring your company IP remains where it belongs.
The relationship between businesses and consumers has evolved in recent years, thanks in part to social media channels and greater public scrutiny. Further complicating the relationship, is the increasing pressure on companies to keep personal data secure, or face the wrath of the ICO.
Unfortunately, customer data is also valuable to other parties. This has made retail businesses and manufacturers the targets of cyber attacks, and has ensured that accidental data breaches are even more devastating.
