360ict Ltd. has published a new article on their blog entitled “Huge Business Data Breach Revealed In Scam Awareness Month” , which sheds light on the most important aspects of the Dixons Carphone data breach involving some 5.9 million payment cards and 1.2 million personal data records. June 2018 is Scam Awareness Month. Owners of SME’s, IT Managers and staff, and other interested individuals can view the full article at https://www.360ict.co.uk/Blog/2018-06-20/huge-business-data-breach-in-scam-awareness-month
The article includes several interesting pieces of information, one in particular is that over £660m lost each year through retail crime, at least £36m of this is due to online criminal activity. This should be of particular interest to business owners and relevant staff because it shows that criminals are constantly coming up with new ways of conning us and that it is important for businesses and individuals to take every precaution.
One of the most important piece of information the article conveys is that it’s important to take steps to protect yourself online, whether shopping on line or wanting to safeguard your customers’ data. The best example of this is perhaps found in the following extract:
‘Given the recent Dixon Carphone data breach warning, it’s important for businesses to be able to reassure customers that their data is safe with them. Businesses themselves need to ensure they have taken every precaution to avoid the damaging fate of companies in the news recently ‘
In discussing the article’s creation, Roy Charles, Founder at 360ict Ltd. said:
“SMEs need to be critically aware that they are potentially vulnerable to data breaches. It may seem like an overwhelming task, but with the guidance of professional IT consultants, such as 360ict Ltd., the process of becoming secure is typically less disruptive and more affordable than may be feared. One thing is certain, is that business owners, no matter the size of the enterprise, cannot ignore the reality and dangers of the modern connected world.”
