Data Loss Prevention

For that same reason, the software to prevent data is very important. The problem is not just losing data; it is also preventing theft of them.

The loss of data is very expensive, but can be effectively prevented. There are many systems available for companies (every day you can find more and better software).

The cost of prevention is always less than the cost of loss, and even if there is no loss, the cost worth it: Safety is the first, for your business and your customers!
It is not so difficult to prevent, but it is really hard to heal this damage! And we must not forget that we need also to protect our reputation.

As you said well, a change of mentality is essential!
Great post, congratulations!

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
