data breaches from increasing digitisation

Data breaches from increasing digitisation

In recent years, digital technology has become more and more integral to business operations. Many employees spend the majority of their working lives on computers, using a variety of digital applications and resources to carry out their duties. However, the dawning and development of the digital age has also brought with it a wave of new data security risks, with cyberattacks and insider vulnerabilities posing threats to personal information. Data breaches from increasing digitisation can, therefore, represent a problem for all businesses to tackle in respect of their data protection strategies.

Arguably, the Covid-19 pandemic sped up the process of digital transformation in business, pushing companies to develop new ways of working that support an increase in the number of employees clocking in from home. In the post-pandemic world, businesses look set to retain remote working to some degree, meaning that increasing digitisation will be an ongoing matter to manage.

With the risk factors brought on by the digitisation of personal data, all organisations must be doing everything they can to protect the information they hold. Where they fail to do so, they may be in breach of data protection law, and those affected may be entitled to claim compensation.
