Company bosses must learn to trust their staff when it comes to developing the best measures to improve IT security.
This is the view of Brian Lord, managing director of Bristol-based Protection Group International, who told the Bristol Post that company leaders should encourage staff to take additional training in the latest IT security practices, as doing so can help to protect sensitive consumer information and make the need for data recovery services in the event of a breach less likely.
Overall, bosses need to take an interest in IT security, but they do not need to be experts in the field.
“It’s about understanding enough to ask the right questions and make balanced investment decisions,” Mr Lord stated. “It’s the same whether you were a small or a large company.”
He added that developing a better understanding of the cyber risks facing any business is essential for the safe handling of data.
