Information security has never been more paramount in an age where digital transactions and online communications dominate the business landscape. Recent statistics highlight the urgency: according to the Australian Cyber Security Centre, over 60% of Australian businesses experienced a cyber incident in the past year.
These breaches disrupt operations and can erode trust, damage reputations, and incur significant financial losses. As the digital frontier expands, so does the complexity of protecting sensitive data and systems.
This is where Agilient steps in. As one of Australia’s premier information security consultants, Agilient provides tailored strategies to safeguard your digital assets, ensuring your business remains resilient and secure in a volatile cyber landscape.
What is Digital Information?
Digital information refers to data stored in a binary format, which is fundamentally based on ones (1s) and zeroes (0s). This format is foundational to our computerised world, encapsulating everything from textual data like documents and emails to multimedia content such as audio, video, and image files.
In addition, digital information encompasses software applications, organised databases storing vast arrays of data, and digital communication methods like emails and Voice over IP calls.
The burgeoning field of the Internet of Things (IoT) further expands the realm of digital data, with devices ranging from smart thermostats to industrial machinery producing and transmitting information continuously.
Digital information has revolutionised our daily lives, work, and communication, but it also presents paramount challenges related to data security, privacy, and proper authorisation controls.
