Smaller businesses are urged to take control of their computer security in a campaign launched by the Department of Trade and Industry yesterday.
The DTI warned companies that information security breaches cost more than the price of stolen hardware. The loss of information stored on the hard drive of a PC could be far more serious than the cost of a replacement computer.
Called IT Security Awareness (ISA), the campaign is being run by the National Computing Centre, the British Standards Institution and P Four Consultancy. They will issue guidelines and advice to companies covering information security measures, and a poster to encourage staff to take simple steps to avoid problems. There is also an infoline on (0345) 15 2000.
