Data breach – theft of Digital Data records

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInShare on Google+Pin on PinterestBuffer this page

Confidence in the security of online digital networks took a heavy blow with the recent disclosure that hackers had breached Sony’s Play Station Network and taken account details of close to 25 million users worldwide including some credit card details. After some huffing and puffing about the safety of its data encryption, yesterday, Sony finally came clean and admitted that some 12,700 encrypted credit card details and over 10000 direct debit details were also stolen during the two day cyber attack. All the affected data apparently came from an outdated 2007 database. Less than 4 years old and obsolete -that’s the digital age for you!!

It also goes to show that our increasing reliance on digital storage is providing a bonanza for ever more sophisticated thieves and that the current preference to store sensitive information on our computers, pen drives and on our providers remote servers makes it far more accessible than the unfashionable paper files in the drawer approach.

Not much you can do about your personal data stored on someone else’s database other than to not sign up in the first place but you should review the security of your own data storage to ensure that a would be thief is at least made to work for his spoils. Small things like changing file access and site login passwords on a regular basis and setting a screen password on your computer can thwart the casual thief.

Laptop Security CabinetsOf course you should also make sure that your laptop is stored securely when not in use. The theft of the whole kit and caboodle can cause havoc particularly to businesses but also other high volume users like schools and colleges.

If the company laptops remain on the premises they can be stored in a purpose made Laptop Security Cabinet or Locker. You can get versions that also charge the laptops ready for the next shift.  If you have highly confidential or sensitive info stored you can go one step further and use a Laptop Safe. These are also ideal for home office users as they can double up for storage of cash and valuables.

And finally be more diligent before giving your credit and debit card details and any personal info online. Look for evidence of independent site security verification like the McAfee Secure and Safebuy icons.
