To ensure data security the use of best practice polices within organisations cannot be overstated. This means having policies on e-mail encryption, password protection, backups, fire wallprotection, virus scanning etc. Only when these policies are put into practice in an organisation can data said to be secure. Do you need a fire wall? Here are three questions to ask. Is your network attached to the Internet? Do you have information in your department that other departments should not have access too? Do your remote connected branches have external Internet access. If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you do need a fire wall

Ignore your data security at your peril. Many organisations are their data. contact to see what you can do, to tighten up security in your organisation



It's personal. It's private. And it's no one's business but yours. You may be planning a political campaign, discussing your taxes, or having a secret romance. Or you may be communicating with a political dissident in a repressive country. Whatever it is, you don't want your private electronic mail (e-mail) or confidential documents read by anyone else. There's nothing wrong with asserting your privacy
