RTE‘s Prime Time Investigatesprogram ran a piece on 2nd of July on the extent of Cyber Crime in Ireland. The program is now available online and it has me contributing to it. The segment starts about 18 minutes into the program.
Interesting take aways from the program for business owners;
- You have legal obligations under the Data Protect Act to protect your staff and clients’ personal information.
- Good security is not difficult to implement
Other areas discussed in the program, and in particular during the panel discussion, relate to the effectiveness of the current Data Protection laws, whether or not we should have mandatory breach disclosure laws (something which I have spoken about before) and how is Ireland as a nation dealing with cybercime. Items which I shall blog about soon.
