In the wake of the recent Snowflake breach, companies must re-evaluate their cybersecurity measures to protect their infrastructure and stakeholder data. This breach, alongside notable incidents at Ticketmaster, Santander Bank, HMRC, and major NHS hospitals, underscores the vulnerabilities that even prominent organisations face.

In our previous article, “Protecting Your Data: Lessons from the Recent Snowflake Breach,” we emphasised the critical role of individual data protection. Extending this to companies, it’s evident that organisational responsibility is paramount.

“Companies must recognise the gravity of their responsibility in safeguarding data. The recent breaches highlight the need for robust cybersecurity measures,” says Samuel Brown, Managing Partner at NorthCap Cyber. “It’s not just about protecting data but also maintaining trust and compliance.”
