New Website Provides Free Advice on Protecting Business Data
The Information Security Awareness Forum (ISAF) has launched a website offering free advice to firms on how to protect their business information.
The website contains guidance on storing business data securely on- and off-line, and includes sections dedicated to SMEs, corporates and consumers. The site also includes links to the main sources of advice on data security on the Internet.
Small businesses can download dedicated ‘Directors’ Guides’ from the website on topics such as managing information securely, establishing an information risk policy and understanding the legal obligations of storing online and offline business data.
“The Information Security Awareness Forum has been formed to co-ordinate and build on existing work and initiatives, and ultimately to increase the level of security awareness that will help us all,” said ISAF chair Dr David King.
The ISAF was founded by the Information Systems Security Association Advisory Board and is backed by the British Computer Society, GetSafeOnline and the Security Awareness Special Interest Group (SASIG).
“The new website serves people seeking security awareness for themselves and their families, as well as managers of business,” said chairman and founder of SASIG, Martin Smith. “It caters for businesses of all sizes and sectors looking for guidance on how to protect their data.”
