Everyone wants or rather, needs their data to be safe, but what, exactly, does that mean? Is it backed up in the event of a system breakdown or a natural disaster? Is the data behind an impenetrable fortress even the most seasoned hackers can’t access? Is your data security system foolproof even if your employees aren’t as careful as they should be?

If your data is in the cloud, the technology is safer than ever because there is more sensitive data being stored in the cloud than ever before. Cloud service providers can protect data physically and technologically while it is in the cloud, but that info can be hacked as soon as it leaves the cloud to interact with other systems.

Your business can benefit from the instantaneous sharing of data that is possible today due to cloud-based data storage. It also means data can be left exposed unless the appropriate precautions are taken.

Data security is the protection of data against unauthorized access or corruption, and it is necessary to ensure the integrity of your data, as well. One way to maintain data security is by complying with the regulations related to your business’s industry, including ITAR, GDPR and HIPAA.

Even after taking these steps, it is wise to entrust the security of your data to the experts. 2W Tech offers a full range of Cybersecurity Consulting Services to help you protect your systems, detect threats, and respond to cybersecurity incidents. Contact us today to learn more.
