From names to addresses and payment information to account numbers, the financial industry handles multiple types of sensitive data. It is important that businesses follow the strict regulations set by governing bodies such as PCI (Payment Card Industry), DPA (Data Protection Act 1998), UK Corporate Governance Code, SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley Act 2002) and new EU regulations which all incur substantial fines and damaging reputations if they are not met.

The legal industry interacts and holds high volumes of sensitive data from business to personal relations. Traditionally, the legal industry stored all the sensitive data as hard copies in filing cabinets on premises which unfortunately is very problematic. Files can easily be misplaced, damaged, lost and ultimately takes up a lot of physical space and can also lead to wasted productivity when staff spend lengths of time searching for necessary data. This has led the majority of legal businesses to digitalise their data and store within on premise servers, cloud environments or hybrid environments. Security is now one of the main concerns for the legal industry as they deal with the high volumes of highly sensitive data.
Today’s pharmaceutical industry handles as much data as it has ever done.

Protecting IP is crucial to any industry especially pharmaceutical considering enterprises handle imperative research, development and production data as well as test subject data – which needs to be protected adequately with the latest GDPR act.
