3 Reasons Why Encryption is Essential for Business
Sure, there are plenty of reasons to use Encryption to protect your sensitive data – but there are three key factors, that all organizations share in common. The current state of cyber security woes for businesses presents itself as a harsh fact: 88% of companies suffer a data breach due to non-encrypted emails with sensitive information being hacked.
So, what are the key drivers that persuade organizations to take encryption seriously?
1 – To comply with data security regulations and requirements
Organizations must comply, by using the proper security and storage protocols, with U.S and E.U regulations in order to be considered (legally) in good-standing.
2 – To protect intellectual property of the business
Trade secrets are a real deal, and are highly sought after by hackers for ransom and blackmail which often results in bankruptcy of the company due to lack of money and trust from customers.
3 – To protect customer information
Protecting customers and their personal information is at the forefront of security concerns for business. The rise of data breaches within the U.S shows that implementing stronger security protocols is vital to business continuity.
