Understanding Data Breach And It’s Importance

Data Breach, as the name suggests, can be defined as an incident, in which sensitive, classified and confidential data pertaining to a particular business or any individual, has been accessed by any unauthorized person or body, via any unethical process, with malicious intension or otherwise.

Each and every business is at risk of this phenomenon and can lose considerable amount of data and related financial losses. Hence, it is imperative that each and every business should conduct data breach study, to ensure if there is any such chance of breach of data. If so, you should immediately take steps to plug the breach to limit any further damage.

Data breach study is extremely important in today’s business and there is simply no doubt about it. The market is now agog with fight for supremacy amongst the market players that are rich in work experience and financial health. In a bid to edge past the others, quite a few renowned companies are hiring professionals who are spying into rival companies to siphon off sensitive data. Customer information, pricing information, and even employee data are all information that can be used against you. Thus, there is a considerable amount of risk, when it comes to sharing sensitive data, and a little mistake can cost heavy.

Let us understand this issue in a bit more detail. Prevention of data breach is a very important issue, in this age of data pilferage. The pace of the life has increased and so is the competition in the market place. This is the root cause behind all these. Nevertheless, this phenomenon needs to be stopped once and all, if any business wants to thrive.

If you are a large company with multiple offices, you need to make information available to all employees. The easiest way to do this is to use the Internet and possibly cloud services. The minute you do this, you make yourself susceptible to data breach.

While the advent of the Internet has been a boon in most of the cases, in some cases, it really is a deadly threat. With the help of the Internet and software, it is become easy to siphon off your data. Hence, it is really necessary for these companies to opt for a foolproof system that will prevent data breach.

There are many facets of data breach. It can happen due to a number of reasons and in a number of ways. These methods include accessing control lists, encryption techniques, breaking your firewall, getting hold of various permissions, and a finally peeking into your database of information.

People can hack into the official website of the company and seize all the strategic data from the website and use them in their own projects. Thus, it is imperative that each and every way of data breach needs to be plugged in the most strategic way to limit these incidences. Unless and until there is a better understanding of the methods in which data breaches can take place, or unless and until the reason behind this phenomenon is rightly ascertained, implementation a holistic and successful control mechanism cannot be done. That is where the importance of studying and understanding the methods used for Data Breach is so very important.

Once the true reasons behind a possible data breech is correctly ascertained, it also becomes much easier to plug further loss of data with all the vigor, determination and purpose.

7 Reasons to Switch to VoIP

If you are on the fence about a new IP telephone system, here are 7 reasons to consider switching to a VoIP business phone system.

  1. Mobile Solutions
    Legacy phone systems use traditional desk phones, which are great if all your work takes place at a desk. But you no longer have to be near your desk phone to handle calls. With VoIP, you can use software on your PC to make and receive calls, as well as use a free app to make and receive business phone system calls on your smartphone.
  2. Never miss an important phone call
    With VoIP, you can direct incoming calls to ring at multiple locations — cell phone, home phone, office desk, etc. You set your preferences for how phone calls find you and follow you based on time of day, incoming caller ID or your availability status.
  3. A direct line for every user
    VoIP gives each user a direct inward dial (DID) phone number or private line. Calls can go directly to them without having to go through a receptionist or automated attendant. Your customers, vendors, suppliers and colleagues can quickly get in touch more quickly with employees who have a DID.
  4. Voicemails and faxes delivered to your email
    On a VoIP solution with unified messaging, voicemails are recorded as a .wav file and then emailed to you and/or delivered to your desk phone or smartphone. There’s no need to call into the office to see if you have any voicemail messages.Similarly, incoming faxes can be received as.pdf files and emailed to you or to a designated general email. Get faxes anywhere you get your email.

  5. Call Control from your PC or tablet
    With unified communications, you can use your PC to click-to-dial, create on-screen “buttons” for other extensions, see the availability of colleagues and instant message (chat) with them, review call history, and add shortcuts to files and applications. You already use your PC for most business functions throughout the day. VoIP allows you to save time and be more productive.
  6. Your smartphone as your extension
    Have you ever needed to call a customer or vendor back from your cell phone but didn’t want them to see your personal cell phone caller ID? With VoIP and a free app, you can call from your cell phone and show the office main caller ID. You can conference, transfer, screen calls and more, right from your smartphone.
  7. Automatic screen pops in your CRM
    Inbound calls will open the contact in your customer relationship management (CRM) system based on caller ID. You know who is calling as you answer the phone, and you can have their current account and contact information immediately on your screen. This allows you to increase productivity and provide exceptional customer service.
