Data Protecting for Enterprises

Data is vital to any business. It allows it to operate efficiently and profitably. But businesses have to keep in mind the necessity of having access to and plentiful data with the need to keep the customer’s data secure and private. This is a challenge posed by the ever-changing privacy laws like the GDPR in Europe and California’s CCPA as well as traditional laws like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Securities and Exchange Commission rules that protect the financial information of shareholders as well as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard for data about consumer payments.

The first step in ensuring data protection is to catalog and protect all of your data. This involves identifying, categorizing and determining access levels of data according to its sensitivity. It is also crucial to establish a policy that ensures data protection, regardless of whether it is in motion or at rest. Using a tool which can monitor and detect file activity and identify anomalous patterns can help you identify suspicious activities and swiftly identify and address vulnerabilities, including out-of-date software and misconfigurations.

A comprehensive backup and recovery strategy that includes physical storage media is vital. And lastly, it is important to enforce meaningful measures of security, ranging from background checks for potential hires to periodic training sessions for existing employees, to terminating employees who no longer require access to vital systems. It is also essential to create a disaster recovery plan to ensure that your data is safe in the event of a natural or human-caused disaster.
