Is your data on the move secure or…

17th December 2018

…are you sitting on a data security ticking time bomb?

With the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) now in full force across the EU (and being mirrored by the UK with the Data Protection Act 2018), businesses found not to have disclosed data breaches or protected their customer’s data, face enormous fines and long term business disruption.

With valuable credentials being bought and sold on the dark web for serious money, significant data breaches – often involving millions of records – seem to be more and more commonplace.

Of course, not everybody who finds a USB drive is a criminal or has bad intentions, but in the wrong hands a lost or stolen USB can have immediate and permanent consequences.

Lose an unencrypted USB and you could face…

  • Huge fines from the ICO (Information Commissioners Office) – Heathrow were recently fined £120,000 for losing an unencrypted USB containing sensitive data
  • Reputational damage
  • Loss of customers
  • Financial losses
  • Loss of information
  • Staff churn

Implement a simple ‘Data SOS Solution’ today with SafeToGo® Solo, a secure hardware encrypted USB and rest easy in the New Year knowing your data will always be safe on the go.

Find your nearest SafeToGo® Solo distributor here or buy individual drives on Amazon – available for next day delivery with Prime.

Don’t wait until the New Year to make resolutions around data security on the move.
