How to protect important recruitment information

Australian recruitment agencies maintain important data that if leaked or exposed could hold major privacy ramifications for thousands – if not millions – of people. This is why it is important agencies protect their information properly and install a cloud computing system or efficiency software

Cloud computing has become a mainstay of Australian businesses in recent years as companies continue to use it for data storage and online collaborations.

In the past months, issues such as the Heartbleed bug have prompted businesses to develop secure systems to protect their important information. This either through cloud computing or the installing recruitment software. 

According a recent report named 'Cloud Computing in Australia' from the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), 86 per cent of large organisations are already using the cloud. This is up from 72 per cent in 2012.

"Industry research indicates that the cloud computing market in Australia is likely to grow strongly over the next few years with compound growth rates for industry revenue estimated to be in the vicinity of between 19 and 25 per cent per annum," the report noted.

The International Data Corporation has noted the cloud is advantageous for all businesses, not just those in the IT sector.

"By 2015, cloud will be just another delivery model for a range of 'as-a-service' offerings that are based on infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and software as a service (SaaS)," the company said in a 2013 forecast.

Recruitment agencies that move critical data onto a cloud can also eliminate the risks posed by maintaining physical documents. In the event of theft, extreme weather events or other disasters, information is protected. 

By investing in sound recruitment software and cloud computing, businesses can operate in the best work environment possible.
