Data protection for SMEs and entities needing to share confidential information
The exponential increase in personal, business and government data flowing across the internet between devices is exposing us to an ever-widening range of financial and criminal threats. Entities sharing confidential information with other entities or employees find it difficult to ensure that this information is returned or deleted when agreements or employment terminate. For example confidential, commercially-sensitive information can flow between companies from NDAs, from sharing patient medical records, or from providing employees working from home with material they would have normally have accessed only in the office. When the agreements are terminated or the employee is no longer employed, what happens to the data?
Data is a company’s most valuable asset. Its abuse and misuse can cost a company its credibility, revenue and even force it to close its doors. Many data protection solutions are too expensive for most companies and are too challenging to implement and use. The solution offered here delivers a simple, intuitive and cost-effective software application for data protection. Customers receive a product that offers military-grade encryption but without the labour required to define rules or manage keys. Users retain total control over the data they own, regardless of where it travels once it leaves their possession for the remainder of the data’s lifetime. The data can be deleted when required.
Tracking cryptocurrency transactions
To effectively fight against organised crime a multi-agency and multi-sector approach is required. Investigators need to understand, from teaching and mentoring, the financial crime red flags, and the methodologies and processes used to launder the proceeds of crime.
Organised crime will search out professional enablers and money launderers to facilitate their enterprise. Professionals can be complicit or targeted due to the services they offer such as notarising transactions and depositing and moving money. This type of service can be manipulated to launder the proceeds of crime.
As the methods of money laundering become more complex, the task of investigating, prosecuting and recovering the proceeds become more difficult. The difficulty becomes more acute as organised crime launder criminal property utilising techniques from cash and trade-based money laundering to entering into the cyber world and exploiting cryptocurrencies. The key to successful prosecution and confiscation is unlocking and developing a joined-up policing and regulatory response.
