EQUIFAX DATA BREACH- ARE YOU AFFECTED?

5th October 2017

What will be your reaction if your physical space has been invaded or your privacy compromised? I have no doubt you will go berserk. Each one of us as much as possible tries to protect whatever property we have.

It is a fact that the world has gone digital and we conduct our lives in the digital world and consequently we lose the power to be able to protect our most valuable property being our data (identity, address, date of birth, bank account details etc) as this power is entrusted to third parties.

Unfortunately, things go wrong, and when they do it is on a gargantuan scale. One only needs to read the news item of Equifax data breach and it will all come home what one means by data breach http://www.wired.co.uk/article/equifax-credit-data-breach-uk-security.

This is why we have partnered with Perceptive IT (a company specialising in IT security), to help our clients protect their most valuable assets from hackers. From this month onwards, we will offer free advice to our clients who need advice as to how they can protect themselves from “thieves” stealing their data.
