British consumers have been rocked by several high-profile data breaches in recent months. Last month it emerged that up to 34,000 holidaymakers at Butlin’s resorts may have had their personal information stolen by hackers. A few weeks later, British Airways admitted its security systems had been breached in a malicious criminal attack on its website, which led to hundreds of customers having their personal and financial details compromised. 

Perhaps unsurprisingly, flexibility is a key buzzword for a company that has the word ‘elastic’ in its name. Launched in 2005, Edinburgh-based Elastic Creative has developed into one of the city’s most prominent brand and marketing consultancies, using a wide range of communication tools to promote client brands, products and services.

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) are coming in to force on 25th May 2018, and with this the security, protection and management of mobile devices must be considered as one of the most important subjects for all companies and IT personnel.

With more high-profile device attacks appearing in the news, there is now a far greater scrutiny surrounding the possibility of confidential data falling into the wrong hands, and Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a key area for review.

“We received information on the afternoon of the 1st December that some customer data may have been stolen by a third party (often referred to as ‘hacking’). An urgent investigation by cyber security specialists was instigated. At 5.45pm on the 2nd December the security specialists informed us that the customer database related to our old website was breached (or hacked) between 15th and 17th June 2015. This website has since been replaced in its entirety. Our current website is managed by a new digital partner. The new partner has no connection to the website that was the subject of the breach of security.”
