Did you know how many organizations last year suffered due to cybersecurity breaches? According to the Office of National Statistics, there were 5.1 million incidents of fraud and 2.5 million cases of computer crime in 2015 alone. This is why companies today are careful of who has access to their data.
From the Sony Pictures Entertainment fiasco to the recent VTech hack, cyber security issues prove that failure to secure customer data can put you in hot water. As the world becomes more connected and accessible, it is the responsibility of CRM vendors to secure all data entrusted to them.
Who’s in the Spotlight?
With critical data stored inside a CRM, companies are right to demand stringent standards of data protection. In fact, it has come to a point that most businesses now only pool resources with those CRM vendors who provide comprehensive security. This puts CRM vendors in the spotlight to provide complete security to their customers.
