I don’t think there is a huge difference between generations or national groups when it comes to understanding privacy, confidentiality, and security. Everyone has an innate feeling that privacy, confidentiality and security are all things people should be entitled too and therefore most people feel the same about it. However, the problem is that there are people out there who enjoy the thrill of being able to access anyone’s personal information, and also using people’s personal details for personal gain.
There are several critical Internet security issues everyone needs to be aware of. Some of these include viruses, identity theft, spam, and spyware. More importantly for business owners, they need to assure that hackers don’t get into their system and corrupt it with any kinds of viruses. They need to also make sure their customer information is safe and secure so that personal information does not fall into the wrong hands. Identity theft has been a growing trend in recent years and has caused several problems for so many people.
Businesses have a huge responsibility in providing a safe and secure environment for transactions, as well as for customer information. First and foremost, for any business to become truly successful, you need to assure your customers that their information is secure and safe. If you provide them with this, they are more likely to come back and do business with you in the future.
These responsibilities and security issues can be met by assuring you have an IT department that is up to date with all the newest security concerns. Furthermore, it might beneficial to make your employees aware of any malicious spyware and viruses that are crawling around the web and to not click any link that might seem suspicious. If you have a security department that makes clear the issues that are out there, companies should be somewhat safer.
