What is data encryption?
Data encryption scrambles your data to ensure it cannot be read and stolen from outside sources. It is an essential part of online security and incredibly important for businesses to protect personal data, work files, emails and more.
Keeping your business safe
Using ESET, a leading data security software, we’re able to provide a wide range of solutions to ensure your encrypted data is safe and secure.
There are two main types of encryption; symmetric encryption and asymmetric encryption. Both options offer secure data protection but in slightly different ways.
Also known as private key encryption, this method requires both the sender and receiver of data to have access to the same encryption key in order to decrypt the message.
Without the same decryption key, the receiver won’t be able to read or understand the data.
Also known as public key cryptography, this encryption process uses two separate keys; public and private. These are linked and one is an encryption key and the other is a decryption key.
Which type of encryption is right for your business? This depends on a number of factors which we can discuss with you to create the right solution for your data.
How to keep sensitive data safe
As a business there are many ways you and your staff can protect data and reduce your risk of data theft. Our team are experts in cyber security and can advise on best practice approaches in relation to our security services.
Dispose of old IT equipment properly
A lot of companies don’t consider what to do with old IT and computers once they’ve upgraded. It’s vital that you don’t just dispose of the old tech without completely wiping all data from them. At Woodstock IT we work with old computers and laptops to completely clear all data and refurbish IT systems for resale. Speak to our team to discuss your old IT before disposing of it.
When it comes to your business, ensuring all online solutions are secure is extremely important. This also includes your WiFi – you want to use a reliable and secure WiFi connection to reduce the risk of any external threats.
Antivirus and malware protection
Malicious software and viruses can cause serious harm to your business and day-to-day working life. Having up to date virus protection software will help ensure your computers are safe from harmful attacks. Our team can protect multiple computers at once, so you can rest assured your whole team is covered.
Backup and data recovery tools
If the worst case scenario happens and you find a threat has got into your system, backup and data recovery will give you peace of mind. Taking regular backups will mean any lost data can be restored quickly and easily. Without this in place, it can be extremely costly and time consuming.
Use strong passwords
Ensure your staff are using strong passwords across all areas of your business. This teamed with encryption software will ensure that external threats can’t easily access your systems and data.
Review who has access to certain data
It’s always worth considering how accessible your data is. If every single person in your organisation has access to all data, this can lead to a bigger risk of accidental data leaks or viruses gaining access. Review your current setup and see if there is a more secure way to store your data and who can access it.
