This article will outline the most effective measures to be placed by a business to ensure its data is completely safe.
Most of the data breaches reported in a business setting are due uninformed choices by the staff, some from carelessness, it is therefore key for the business management to give clear instructions on how data should be handled. One such measure is for all computers to remain attended and if not should be locked to ensure all data in it is simply accessed by persons who are responsible of it. All the staff members who handle confidential company’s information should ensure they change their computer’s password on daily basis to lock away any individuals who might have had access to previous passwords, this is a very effective way of keeping the company’s information secure.
Important company’s information can be backed up on Azure to make sure it is only accessed by persons who it concerns.

All members of staff in a business setting should be well informed on fraud methods criminals are using online to access information from companies and this data obtained could easily cause the downfall of a company.
In case any of the staff carry with them company laptops and phones they use to log in into the company’s systems, they should be extremely careful with them as they are targeted by thieves who can use them to breach the data of the business, passwords should be only binput in safe places and not in the site of anyone.
