When considering which ERP software solution to purchase, yes of course you want a comprehensive package that can handle all your key financial and operational tasks in one place. BUT with the growing threat to UK businesses from cyber-crime you should also be asking what levels of security can be provided to protect the highly valuable data that you will be storing within it.

Just stop for a second to consider the nature of the information you will be storing:

  • Customer details
  • Supplier details
  • Employee records
  • Financial details
  • Prospect details

If you were to fall victim to ransomware or one of your employees clicks on a phishing email giving cyber criminals access to your data bringing your business to a halt, would you be able to recover? Would you even know if you had someone illegally accessing your network and ERP applications?

The new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) which comes into effect in 2018 - the biggest shake up of data protection law for twenty years - states that you will be required to notify the information commissioner of a breach within 72 hours. If you have not taken steps to protect your data then you could face a significant fine.
