Data theft is one of the biggest problems that companies face today

Sensitive company data, sales reports, files containing negotiating tactics, customer lists, trade secrets, strategic documents, financial information, and intellectual property are all reported stolen by companies. The 2015 Cost of Data Breach Study: Global Analysis report by IBM and Ponemon Institute pegs the average total cost of a data breach to participant companies at $3.7 million. A survey by Biscom, provider of secure communications software, shows that one in four employees admitted to taking data when leaving a company. About 95 percent of respondents said that it was possible to take data, because companies did not have any foolproof technology or policies in place to prevent theft. Data breaches and customer data theft dip brand value and erode customer trust. The price that companies have to pay is very high when a high-profile data breach, like that at Ashley Madison, takes place at their company. Here are a few tips to use to ensure data security and prevent data theft at your company.
