SME's need to protect their data - Ed Vaizey, MP and former Minister of State for Culture and the Digital Economy, stresses the importance.
Keeping your data secure is vital
We have data protection regulations that are currently through the European Commission and the European Parliament at the moment.
It’s really important that people understand that it is their data and that they should as far as possible be able to give consent to how that data is used.
But we do work with companies, both large and small, on data protection issues to encourage a strong regime to keep data safe and secure.
We have a powerful regulator in the Information Commissioner as well as Ofcom, our media regulator, who works very closely as well to educate businesses on how to keep data secure.
Keeping your data secure is a really vital part of the digital economy.
