Cybercrime and Data Protection
Protecting your organisation from the UK’s fastest growing threat.
Our comprehensive service
We offer support in 5 key areas that cover everything your organisation needs to become resilient to cybercrime, to ensure data protection compliance, and to be prepared if a cyber breach or data protection incident should occur.
Your legal responsibilities
Organisations have a duty of care to ensure that adequate protections are in place to maintain data security and to deter and prevent crime. A cybercrime or data protection incident can result in reputational damage, financial loss, and public embarrassment as well as subsequent fines from the Information Commissioner’s Office.
If found at fault, organisations can be fined up to £500,000, but this will soon be rising shortly to €20 million, with the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (May 2018).
Cyber criminals target organisations for the data they hold: personal identity of clients or employees, financial, intellectual property, to sell on, to use themselves, or to extort money from you.
Cyber criminals target organisations for the data they hold:
- personal identity of clients
- personal details of employees
- financial information
- intellectual property
and they profit by selling it on, using it themselves, or by extorting money from you.
