Where in the world is your data

6 Apr 2023

As you may already know, TikTok has been in the news lately for all the wrong reasons. Government agencies are banning TikTok from government-issued devices due to data security concerns. This situation highlights several issues that organizations should be asking themselves:

  • “Where is your data held?” 
  • “Who has access to your data?” 
  • “If a breach happens, is there someone available to help you?”

At OnePassport, we’ve been asking our customers the same questions for the past six years. We understand that it can be challenging to keep track of all the terms and conditions when you download apps or install new software. That’s why we have simple T&Cs and take the necessary steps to ensure that all of our data is housed securely in Australia, encrypted during transfer, and compliant with local privacy laws.

When it comes to data security, it’s not just about being compliant with local laws and regulations. It’s also about understanding the risks associated with data breaches and taking proactive measures to mitigate those risks.

One of the most effective ways to prevent data breaches is to train your staff on data security best practices. This includes creating strong passwords, being cautious of phishing emails or text messages, and keeping all software up-to-date.

Another crucial step is to limit access to sensitive data. Only authorized personnel should have access to sensitive information, and access should be granted on a need-to-know basis. This helps to prevent data breaches caused by human error or malicious intent.

At OnePassport, we take data security seriously, and we want to make sure you feel safe knowing that your workforce compliance data is securely housed with us. We believe that data security is a shared responsibility, and we’re committed to working with our customers to ensure that their data is protected.
