UK businesses 'behaving recklessly' on the web
Companies are putting their business at risk by sending and accepting vital documents by e-mail without taking adequate security measures.
According to web-security specialist 5GM, company security is being compromised in the dash to maximise internet use for transactions that were previously carried out without web technology.
5GM managing director said: ‘People are placing and accepting vital business documents like purchase orders with no proof of integrity, no security and no proof of delivery. Apart from the obvious serious business risk, companies and their directors are quite possible defaulting on their legal obligations and responsibilities’.
