Companies need to focus more on data management as more information is placed online, an expert has warned.
Anthony Torreso, of hosting firm Ruby Ring Technologies, said the risk of security breaches is increasing as more data is placed on the internet.
Sensitive details such as medical records and financial information could be compromised if firms do not tighten up their data management policies, he said.
Mr Torreso said firms need to have a better understanding of the level of protection needed to keep their data secure.
