Why Your Business Should Care About Information Security Today

In the age of the world wide web, protecting information has become equally as important as protecting physical property. Information security concerns the protection of both digital and physical information from unauthorised access or destruction.

Each day, we take steps to protect things that hold value to us. We set alarm systems, store items in safes, and lock our properties. The reason we do this is simple, we don’t want people unbeknownst to us to access our valuables. It’s the same with business. IT security protects your intellectual property, business systems and processes, and keeps sensitive business information safe and secure.

Irrespective of the size or scope of your business, there is a real and vital need to ensure the information security of both your own and your clients’ data. We hear far too often of companies and the public’s information being compromised by breaches in security these days, and that’s truly the last thing you want your business to deal with. Therefore, the careful planning, monitoring, implementation and maintenance of strict IT security is incredibly valuable to any business.

The Purpose of Information Security

There are many reasons why information security remains crucial to modern businesses. Let’s take a look at only a few of the top reasons why you need to secure your company’s information:

Availability: Data can be accessed when required;
Confidentiality: Data can only be accessed by those authorised to view it;
Integrity: Data can be relied upon to be processed correctly and be accurate.

Why Should Your Business Be Concerned About IT Security?

You already know the purpose and definition of information security, but why should your business be concerned about implementing IT security today? A sound IT security strategy demonstrates to your clients a clear commitment to data security. This includes strict accessibility rules, and proper confidentiality of any data they entrust to you.

Your business is also exposed to proven procedures to manage risk, and provides your company with a significant competitive edge. It’s also far easier to guarantee a secure exchange of information, creating consistency in the delivery of your services to your clients. Ultimately, you protect your business, its assets, shareholders, clients and employees.
