Digital data series: Mitigating information security risk

It goes without saying that Information and data is one of your business's most valuable assets. In spite of this the average mid-sized business finds it hard to justify employees devoted solely to information security. However, in a world where digital data transfer is so vast and intrinsically linked to internal and external communication, now is the time to prioritise your information risk strategy. Besides the obvious problems of inefficiency associated with data loss there is also a very real risk to reputation that could result in legal action. Contrary to popular belief, It's not all about investing in the next generation of security technology, there are many low cost wins that can be found in addressing issues of corporate culture and employee behaviour. Backed by in depth research undertaken by Iron Mountain and PwC in 2012 this panel of experts will address some of the most pressing challenges to electronic information security risk. Over the course of 4 insightful videos our panel will explore 4 critical questions that mid-sized businesses should be considering in the next 12 months.

Key points to be covered:

1. Information is the lifeblood of business. What risk does that information pose to businesses? What are consequences?
2. What can businesses learn from the risk index? Why is this useful?
3. Sector review: Why is the legal sector at most risk? What is driving FS relative success?
4. What should businesses do to mitigate information risk? People, process, technology - where is the priority?
