  • The risk to your organisation – the Information Commissioner reports that two thirds of data breaches are down to mistakes and oversights by staff.
  • Raising staff awareness is your best defence – the Data Security range includes online training and reference booklets designed to make your staff aware of the steps they must take to keep your firm’s data safe.

How do you protect your firm?

Treat your data as a valuable asset

Your organisation must have policies and procedures for handling client’s personal information securely in all formats, but that’s only any help if your staff understand the importance of following those procedures.

Make your employees aware of the risks

If a data breach should occur, the question inevitably arises: “What were you doing to guard against it?” The Data Security range enables you to show you are meeting your firm’s obligations to raise staff awareness.
