Approx. a year ago, Panama’s well-known Law Firm with International operations Mossack Fonseca’s database, was hacked by an anonymous source that leaked a whopping 2.6 Terabytes of data and send them to Süddeutsche Zeitung, one of the largest German newspapers. This was profound for the journalists that had the data in their hands as the amount of data was really larger than they have ever experienced before.The hackers were able to access company’s database, emails, PDFs, transcripts, images, and other formats of data that contain sensitive and encrypted company and client information and dealings. The “news” got hotter, when it was exposed that the company’s dealings included dirty money transactions from mafia sources and corrupted governmental bodies.

This is not the first time such incidents happen—many companies worldwide get hacked because of lacks in protection systems and proper data maintenance. When their databases and media are not strongly encrypted and protected, hackers can get access through the exploitation of gaps and back-doors. As a result, hundreds and even thousands of sensitive documents can be exposed, causing the company immense ethical and financial damages.
If you don’t want your company to experience such an unfavorable situation, you’ll have to consistently check and improve your system’s protection and maintenance. Here are some good reasons why you should leave that to an expert team:
Experts will consistently check for any data system gaps and loopholes or inconsistencies you may have potentially missed. When you own a large database of info and other info resources e.g. plug-ins, it’s easy to dismiss any gaps that may potentially be exploited by a third source. It will be hard to control everything on your own. Therefore, hiring an expert or a team of experts on this will help you stay on track.

  • You will be provided with solutions and suggestions for improvement. If you have a problem with your system e.g. server not working properly or any other type of error, a team of experts will help fix it fast and help provide protection from future mishaps at the same time.
  • You will save valuable time, money, and resources in general. If you think that hiring an external expert or team will cost you more, think again. First, it will be hard to take the matter in your own hands, and secondly it will cost you much less than hiring full-time employees to take over these issues. Although these things need to be checked on a regular basis, it’s the quality of checks and fixes that matter the most. This is where a team of experts can come to help.
