Secerno Warns Against Simplistic Security

Simplistic security could cause corporate collapse in 2008, warns Secerno

OXFORD, U.K. -- Secerno (www.secerno.com), the technology leader in data security, today warned that simplistic security solutions based on signature block lists or rules-based network security will put organisations at risk in 2008, as it becomes impossible for these products to keep up with the multitude of new attacks.

2007 has been regularly punctuated with data breaches, and as a result public awareness of data protection has risen to an all-time high of 85% (1). The Information Commissioner's annual report also highlighted the ICO received almost 24,000 enquiries and complaints concerning personal information over the 2006/7 period, prosecuting 16 individuals and organisations just over 12 months (2).

Steve Hurn, CEO, Secerno comments, "The memory of the damage caused by 2007's numerous security breaches will not fade quickly. Breaches such as the HMRC's loss of two discs affected 25 million people, whilst Leeds Building society recently lost sensitive data relating to workers payslips and just last week, the DVLA compromised 6,000 drivers after losing their sensitive information. Consumers and credit card companies will no longer tolerate what have now become exceedingly routine data loss incidences."
