Jason Ashley, Senior Partner at IT security company BEW Global, explains why charities need to focus even more on protecting their data. He offers suggestions on how to protect data in motion and data at rest.
The rise in data security breaches and trade secret piracy over the past year is a wake-up call for executives - network security is not enough for charities.
