Data is the lifeblood of every business, allowing it to operate efficiently and profitably. However, companies must take into consideration the need to have access to and plentiful data with the need to keep customer information private and secure. The GDPR in Europe and California’s CCPA are driving this issue as are many long-standing laws such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and Securities and Exchange Commission rules that safeguard financial information of shareholders and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.

The first step to ensure data security is to organize and protect all your data. This includes identifying, classifying and determining the access levels of your data according to its sensitivity. It is essential to establish policies that protect data, whether it’s in transit or in its rest. Using a solution that monitors and detects the activity of files and detect anomalous patterns can help you recognize suspicious activity and quickly spot and address vulnerabilities, including incorrectly configured software and out-of-date applications.

A comprehensive plan for recovery and backup that includes physical storage media is crucial. In the end it is vital to implement effective measures of security, from background checks for new hires to regular training for existing employees, and even terminating employees who no longer require access to critical systems. It is also essential to develop a disaster recovery plan to ensure that your data is protected in the event of a natural or man-made catastrophe.
