In 2021, everything is online and dissemination of information is at a record-breaking high. While there are benefits of online data storage like efficiency and automation, there are also emerging risks of hackers and marketing companies collecting metadata to sell to advertisers.
IT experts have warned about the security risks associated with online data storage and file-sharing programs. Third-party platforms don’t always ensure the protection of users’ data. In some circumstances, data is taken outside of the company’s own IT settings, meaning their data privacy settings are no longer applicable.
The Rehman Sheriff Group (RSG) has invested in security technologies to protect its clients’ data and privacy, in an Australian first for the legal industry. COVID-19, in particular, has reiterated the importance of protecting clients’ data. RSG, who specialise in Australian corporate immigration, including the 482 and the global talent visas, are an Australian law firm that have taken extra measures to protect their clients.
Founded by Farhan Rehman and Oguzhan Sheriff in 2013, RSG believes it must do its utmost to protect its clients’ data and information. “We had started to implement certain measures in 2018, however, after the pandemic, we saw the need to fast track the revamp of our technologies, systems and protocols for complete client data protection” said Farhan.
Software giant IBM estimates 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created every day, with 15 million customers falling victim to identify fraud, costing more than $16 billion annually across the globe. In the current financial environment where most businesses are operating remotely, the need for data protection is becoming increasingly imperative.
While RSG are advocates of ‘Business 4.0’ – A framework of business behaviours that optimises the digital advantage to create customer value, RSG have invested in particular open source technologies, implementation of a stable, non-intrusive yet fully functional build of softwares and implementation of strict ‘data protocols’ to ensure client data and security protection.
‘Window Synder’, ‘Fastly’s’ Chief Security Officer stated ‘one single vulnerability is all an attacker needs.’ Cybercriminals are savvy and will stop at nothing to capitalise on vulnerable security technology. They are known to infiltrate entire databases within hours. This reiterates the importance for customers to choose their business partners carefully. The importance of data privacy cannot be overestimated.
Businesses must oversee risk management to deliver optimal customer experience and confidentiality. RSG, which is a boutique law firm that focuses on 482, global talent visas and Australian corporate immigration, believes that privacy must be a right that is always protected and that privacy will become a highly sought-after commodity in the future especially for the wealthy.
RSG has recently rebranded along with its significant investment in security technology. The Australian company, which operates at an international level, is an industry leader in corporate immigration.
