Secure Business Communications: Protecting Sensitive Data

Information privacy is a constant challenge for organisations. Do you consider your electronic communications to be secure?

Sensitive data is regularly faxed to the wrong number, visible on mislaid unencrypted laptops, or unsecured on PCs sold off or discarded with hard drives still full of data. Failing to protect data provokes serious trust and financial consequences for organisations across all industries and borders.

In light of the attention given to reports of data security breaches, we’ve been talking to decision makers in three sectors in which data protection is mission critical - namely finance, health, and government. Focusing on these three security-conscious industries, this survey reports the current state of data security in the United Kingdom, Ireland and South Africa.

Our researchers talked to people who understand the importance of data protection in their organisations, e.g. management and decision makers in legal, compliance, IT governance and business management roles in organisations with more than 250 employees. We used this survey to gauge their satisfaction with the way they manage the exchange and storage of sensitive information today, and to examine that in the context of their future business and technical priorities.

Organisations in both the public and private sector face demanding data security challenges.
