Data security is top priority.

Security is a top priority for businesses despite the economic downturn, says Dinu Sam David, Information Security Advisor, Trinity Future-In Pvt. Ltd. “Many organisations have realised that data is the most important business asset in the modern world,”.
This is driving a move away from simply strengthening the security of IT systems to concentrating on the data itself and reducing the competition.
Another important area for IT security is developing effective ways to lock down mobile computing devices.
“There could be more than two billion mobile devices in use by business organisations in the next few years and these need to be secured,” he said.
According to Dinu Sam David, organisations should look to governance, risk and compliance processes to protect them through the economic downturn.
“Keeping these three things in mind is the only way IT professionals can meet business needs while protecting organisations’ data assets with less money to throw at the problem,” he said.
