IST195 Project - Blog Post 2

Security is a very important subject in a business. We always hear on the news about identity theft as well as company data systems being hacked. Both situations may ruin the reputation of the customer of the company. It will require a long period of time to fix this problem, both on fixing the area on how information was leaked, as well as on clearing the customer/company's name. Customers have the responsibility to ensure that their personal information such as their social security number is well protected, but businesses also need to ensure that their data system is secure and free from hacking.

In my business idea, it would require very personal information on our clients. This includes the client's travel documents, phone numbers, bank account numbers and much more. If fallen into the wrong hands, this information may destruct the lives of our clients as well as the business. To prevent this from happening, my business would need to have a system that not only processes and accesses client information quickly and efficiently, but it would also need to ensure that it does so safely and that there would be no way this information is breached out into public. Moreover, my business also holds the responsibility to ensure that our clients know that their information will be safely guarded in our system. We also hold the responsibility to remind our clients to beware of who they give their personal information to. This is the least that can be done from letting the personal information of our clients from leaking out into public.
