Data security has always been important for businesses. Nearly every owner has gone out of their way to keep their trade secrets under wraps. But in today's day and age, the pressure to keep data safe has never been higher. This is true for virtual information, but it's also true for physical media as well.

Information can be found, recorded, and traded by criminals for any number of reasons, making it a high-ticket item that you can't afford to ignore.
