Today’s Sunday Independent ran a piece in their business supplement on what companies should be doing to protect the data stored on various devices such as PCs and laptops. I am quoted in the article and highlight that companies need to develop their data classification and handling policy and educate their staff in same before rushing out to solve the problem using technology alone. I have said it before and I will say it again, technology is only part of the solution, people and processes are equally, if not, more important.
By the way in case you read the article and are wondering what document I am holding in the picture, it is the ISO 27001 Information Security Standard. Quite appropriate for the topic being discussed.
