Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are not taking compliance as seriously as they should, which can have dramatic repercussions when it comes to data management.
Graeme Batsman, director of Datadefender.co.uk, said, from his own experience, he has found companies are apathetic about data loss, despite the potential costs to them for failing to comply with regulations.
"Companies see the stories about leaks and hacks quite a lot, but the main thing is people think that it won't happen to them. We know things will increase and get worse. More people are using computers and they have to wake up," he warned.
He said that the recession has meant people put less of an importance on data management because when they do get spare cash they want to use it to drive the business forward with a new website or a new marketing hire.
Spending money on hardware or software to improve the management of data seems boring, he added, and, although firms will feel the benefit, it's not as easy to see what has changed.
