Forget the firewall, it's time to cosy up to your data

Businesses must go beyond the ‘perimeter’ approach to security and focus on understanding the nature of their data and managing access accordingly.

Business owners don’t need reminding that IT security can be a complicated area. The perplexing and dramatic implications of the recent eBay data breach would certainly jog their memory. With more than 145 million customer records exposed to hackers, it’s the kind of seismic event that sticks in the mind -- and keep even the most relaxed business owner awake at night.

It is small consolation to be told that effective data security for business is simpler than many realise. Unfortunately, knowing this does not make the headache go away.
