Data Security Versus Cyber Security

Tuesday, August 20, 2019 2:23 pm, Posted by Absolute Destruction

If you look at the headlines today, it’s very possible that you’ll see yet another story about a multinational company or a prominent political party getting hacked. Companies have had to pay out hundreds of millions of dollars, while countries like America have struggled to deal with foreign hackers interfering in their elections.

It’s in this climate that private citizens and a range of organizations are worried about suffering a data breach. Absolute Destruction specializes in shredding your sensitive material so that it can never get into the wrong hands. We keep you 100% safe from a certain kind of threat.

To stay totally protected, it’s worth considering the difference between cyber threats and data security in general.

Exploring Cyber Security

On a basic level, cybersecurity is about preventing hackers from gaining access to your computer or network. It’s a digital phenomenon.

One way of getting in they may try is a phishing scam, where they send a fake email which appears to be from a reputable institution, and prompts you to reveal sensitive information.

If you give it to them, believing them to be someone else, they may be able to gain further access inside your system and harvest other sensitive information. Never give your passwords to anybody, and you can steer clear of this kind of threat. Cybersecurity is complex, and it’s important to be mindful and stay protected.

Data Security by Shredding

Professional shredders are able to guarantee that your sensitive information will never get into the wrong hands by physically destroying it. Whether you are a private citizen or you’re running a business, you inevitably accumulate data that needs to be kept confidential.

It could be banking records, tax information, old contracts, business plans, personal data about clients and employees, or something else. Whatever it is, Absolute Destruction offers you industry-leading professional shredding.
