As you work tirelessly to enhance your applications to provide the latest enhancements or to make use of the latest technology, something which is often overlooked is data security. We hear almost every day of a data breach here or a data breach there. And let's face it, it damages reputations, leads to financial losses, and could ultimately result in you facing prosecution. It's a foregone conclusion that there will be breaches given the sheer volume of ever growing data that we store electronically on computers.
Businesses, governments, and other organizations are becoming increasingly aware of the need to protect data against unauthorized access from both external and internal sources. Also the global rise of "identity theft" and recent legislation, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), has made data security an issue which can no longer be ignored.
The costs of recovery from a data breach are often overlooked. For instance, a single stolen laptop ended up costing one company in excess of $500,000. It turns out that the laptop contained payroll information, and the costs soon mounted up when you take into account compensation, damage to reputation, and above all, management time in resolving the issue. So the next time you take your laptop out and about with you, ask yourself, "Is the data on this laptop secure?" "Does it really need to be on here?"
