The UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) has slapped the Greater Manchester Police force with a £150,000 fine (reduced to £120,000 for early payment) after a memory stick containing sensitive data about serious crimes was stolen from the home of a police officer. ![dweb-police](/attachments/small/0/dweb-police.jpg "align-right") The ICO has the power to levy such fines if an investigation determines that sensitive data has been put at risk courtesy of a lack of proper data protection being in place. In this particular case it must have been a very quick investigation, filed under the no-brainer category, seeing as the data was being stored …

Zurich Insurance in the UK has just discovered the true cost of failing to secure confidential customer data properly, as the Financial Services Authority (FSA) fines the company a record £2.275m ($3.5m) for the data loss incident in 2008 which potentially put some 46,000 customers at risk. [attach]16866[/attach]The incident occurred when an unencrypted back-up tape containing those 46,000 customer records disappeared in transit between two sites in South Africa in 2008, although apparently it took the best part of a year before Zurich UK heard about the data loss. According to the FSA [URL="http://www.fsa.gov.uk/pages/Library/Communication/PR/2010/134.shtml"]the resulting £2.275m fine is the highest …

The likes of Norton these days make much fuss about just how quick installing a security suite is, but you can forget all claims of being done in 60 seconds when it comes to Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security. Think less of speedy rocket-powered installations and more of slow and steady, with a certain degree of swimming through treacle wearing flippers thrown in.

Wow. That's quite a statistic, but there it is in front of me jumping off the pages of the latest [URL="http://bit.ly/b2rUFg"]global State of Enterprise Security study[/URL] from Symantec. The two lines shining so brightly and grabbing my attention read "75 percent of organizations experienced cyber attacks in the past 12 months" and "these attacks cost enterprise businesses an average of $2 million per year". I'll say it again, wow! Maybe that is not so surprising when you consider that the report states that every enterprise, yes 100 percent, experienced cyber losses in 2009. The top three losses being intellectual property …
