Everyone knows that the days of keeping your business’s information locked in a filing cabinet are long gone. A chain link fence, CCTV camera and underfed German Shepherds are as behind the times in the world of data security as togas, ruffs and bowler hats are in the world of clothes. But how, in the days of internet hacking, Wikileaks and identity theft can you make sure that your information is safe? FMJ investigates with the help of data specialists Boldon James.
The Internet of Things, Big Data and cloud storage have transformed the way in which data is accessed, processed and stored.

As technology evolves, the military has to move with it and the standards put in place also need to change to remain current and fit for purpose. However, this is easier said than done and, as the STANAG 4406 standard for NATO’s Military Messaging Handling System is close to being left behind by new technological advancements, it is important changes are made and soon.

Martin Sugden writes for The Analogies Project.
Local authorities have come under increased scrutiny following the recent publication of results from an audit of sixteen local authorities by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), which found that collectively there was “clear room for improvement” in how they comply with the Data Protection Act.
The annual August getaway has been in full swing but with sun now setting on the summer holidays, employees are tearing themselves away from the beach and heading back to the office. While businesses are well aware of the issues around covering holidays and keeping productivity levels high during the summer months, keeping corporate data secure is not given the attention it should. Whether it is that employees are checking into the office remotely via their mobile devices whilst by the pool or they are caught in the post-holiday blues that comes with an over-flowing inbox, the potential is there for the information contained within the businesses being sent to the wrong person or not being appropriately identified. With the proliferation of BYOD, remote working and an increasing culture for never switching-off, corporations need to be especially vigilant about protecting themselves against potential data leakage or loss.

Analysis: Data protection is one area where ignorance can serve as a defence. “One of the problems we have got as a community is that if you don’t fine people then they don’t do stuff.”
Martin Sugden, chief executive of security firm Boldon James, takes a dim view of his industry. A veteran of the security industry, he believes the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has been lax in punishing those who flout the data protection rules and are failing to deter bad behaviour.
Dated data protection laws, punitive punishments and an inability to classify data are problems for businesses in the age of ever-increasing data breaches, says Martin Sugden.
