San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 18, 2009
IT security organisation Vigilante Bespoke announces the launch of its tailored IT security service to protect the intellectual property of prominent figures.
Individual's who feature prominently in the public eye, or those in possession of large amounts of valuable data, are particularly susceptible to the threat of cybercrime. It's not often a week goes by without a news story being published about a celebrity that has had a compromising photo stolen, or a pop-star that has lost their laptop, containing lyrics for their upcoming album. Just recently Britney Spears, Nicholas Sarkosy, Kayne West, Prince William and Kate Middleton have all allegedly fallen victims to digital intrusion.
These types of attack will be a thing of the past, if Rob Pope, CEO and co-founder of Vigilante Bespoke realises his mission; to eradicate the threat posed by malicious attackers.
"The concept behind Vigilante Bespoke is to provide eminent individuals with the same level of IT protection found within many military and government organisations". As Pope goes on to explain, the threats are profound: "Having worked within the IT security industry for more than 10 years, I witnessed the advances of IT protection within the corporate world, but the same level of security was not administered to private individuals. If we look at an author or script writer, the information passing between the writer and publishing house can be worth millions, yet so often communication is sent via unsecured web-mail and is rarely backed-up."
"For someone in the public eye, losing a camera, phone or laptop storing sensitive or private data could be incredibly detrimental; potentially exposing them to unwanted publicity, or theft of intellectual property."
Data protection and domestic IT security is becoming a topic of increasing importance for governments around the world. A national hi-tech crime unit is being set up in the UK, to help police the Internet, and in the U.S., Germany, France and other countries throughout Europe similar initiatives are being developed.
As Pope demonstrates, there is a solution to the problem: "We can all do our bit to help reduce the risks posed to us by hackers or cyber-criminals. The need to regard our digital property in the same way as our physical property is a good start - you wouldn't leave your car unlocked with the keys in the ignition would you?"
