The second part of this paper detects a risk of the source in Holden, and evaluates the risk effect and identifies it to affect the likelihood of risk.
3.1: Explain why security and confidentiality are important in a business environment?
Tesco London is a famous general shop in the UK. Security and privacy are very important in its business environment (Tesco, 2018). According to Bourgeois and David, (2017) it is very important to keep Tesco’s information safe and secure against possible threats: theft, espionage, and accidental/damaging remedies. The security guard in Tesco is often against a safety that can suppress criminals on business targets. Tesco’s strong security maintenance often reduces the chances of threat. Security in Tesco is also important because it can reassure employees and feel comfortable with additional security while accessing and exiting this facility.
According to Tesco, (2018) the security of Tesco is found in many forms, such as the entrance or close proximity or a security guard securely. Tesco provides advanced technologies to secure security by setting up advanced technologies, providing badges with access to photo identification for each employee, and internal and external cameras to monitor activity. Security is also important for communication methods (Tesco, 2018). For example, Telescope has installed intercom computer systems and has backup systems, such as two-radio radio, when the employees contact for phone failures. Safe and secure cabinets can protect confidential documents and client files from untraced visitors in Tesco. In addition, for the purpose of shredding confidential information and high-security papers, there is a place to reduce the risk of identity theft or the company’s financial risk (Workspirited, 2018).
On the other hand, privacy is also essential for Tesco to meet its organizational goals. In Tesco, it is important to maintain confidentiality in order to comply with moral and legal rules. Almost all levels require Tesco business, maintaining the confidentiality of sensitive information. Tesco protects employees, clients, and protected information secure and secure information. Protecting confidentiality helps keep information from unethical hands(Tesco, 2018). An employee who enjoys important information about a competitor can weaken a company.
Many people unknowingly sign their confidentiality and confidentiality rights when they get access to the Tesco website, in such a way that abuse of personal information, customers, employees, and other clients will have to keep Tesco confidential. Encourage the staff and other business partners, Tesco has a way of protecting privacy. It is usually achieved by incorporating a privacy agreement under the policies of the organization. Why it matters is that some employees and stakeholders may publish information that could be found guilty or see people in a discriminatory way.
Another reason that privacy is important is that it helps keep Tesco united by maintaining fine information. If all employees knew more details about their colleagues, then it would be difficult to combine them. This is especially true in Tesco where people can have different opinions, opinions, sex, or cultural trends. According to Security Matters Because security matters (2018), Confidentiality prevents criminal activity by protecting information that makes it easy for contaminated people to take advantage of a separate or situation that information is disclosed by a person’s personal information, such as finance, can be easily used for fraudulent activities, which is important to keep it confidential.
3.2: Explain the possible consequences of failing to maintain security and confidentiality in line with requirements.
According to Security Matters Because of security matters (2018), Failure to properly secure and protect confidential business information may result in the loss of business/clients. In the wrong hands, confidential information can be misused to perform illegal activities (such as fraud or discrimination), which can distinguish between expensive cases for employers with Tesco. In the UK, TSCO has several laws to protect certain information confidentiality. Employee disclosure of sensitive workers and management information may cause a loss of faith, confidence, and loyalty. It will almost always reduce productivity in Tesco.
A report published by VIP Quality Software Ltd (2018), is very important to protect against potential threats of any organization: theft, espionage, and accidental/harmful removal. This means that if Tesco fails to ensure confidentiality, then it will lose the trust of its stakeholders (including customers, employees, and suppliers), the competitors (losing strategic advantage rate), losing their business instruments, documents, files and releasing its plans and future plans (prototype Design, estimate, technical specifications, customer and employee files, etc). In addition, privacy is essential to ensure proper authentication information within the right person, control access to information, and control the business environment by using various physical and technical means.
Information about customer lists, production processes, financial information, research, website traffic statistics, and computer and building safety information can be shared outside the business. This means that Tesco cannot share the information of the customer with other companies unless the customer has given advance information such as e-mail lists are shared, employee information is confidential, and an employee’s file information, such as social security number, salary, health records, disciplinary action, and termination cannot be discussed because of other employees.
Most of this information cannot be discussed by Tesco staff for potential recruiters who call for a reference. By publishing internal information, they can damage Tesco, which can result in the prosecution of the accused employees for the rescue of their victims. According to Tesco, If Tesco and any of its stakeholders fail to comply with this work, they may face a severe penalty. Failure to comply with the Data Protection Act can mean fines up to £ 5,000. Although in serious breaches of the law, the court can pay a fine of £ 500,000 (without any court sanctuary)
