Why you need this tool?

Large organizations have countless methods of internal and external communication, each of which can lead to a breach of confidentiality and even more importantly, a leak of crucial information to competitors and the outside world.

Every year, confidential information of millions of customers are exposed to potential fraud in  data breaches, e.g. in 2007, a major retailer lost over 90 million of customer data, in 2008 a major bank lost over 10 million of confidential information in data breaches and an international hotel currently faced a £99 million GDPR fine as the ICO reports public awareness of information rights is soaring.

Furthermore, imagine this should happen to your organization? How much will this cost you? Can your company bear such costs?  Considering the consequences, the importance of setting up a comprehensive information security management system immediately becomes apparent.
