Online security and privacy consists of your company’s capacity to protect your information systems, business and customer data. Security elements are not always obvious.

While a security or privacy breach is commonly associated with theft of money, there are other consequences that are equally, if not more, damaging. Other consequences of a security breach include system shut-down, loss of data, and a loss of confidence in your brand, by staff and customers.

On a positive note, security and privacy is increasingly a brand and marketing consideration for consumers who value secure over non-secure companies.
