The threats are increasing daily, with data breaches happening to even the most tech savvy companies. However, protecting your precious data isn't just about focusing on building a digital fortress; it's about creating a comprehensive strategy that covers all the bases.
So, let's jump into our top tips for data security because, in today's interconnected world, it's not a question of if, but when, your defenses will be put to the test.
Tip #1 - Control the entry points
This is the most important first step and means having the right tools and policies in place to protect your network and devices, such as firewalls, network monitoring, password policies, anti-virus, software updates, and data leakage prevention software. These are like a bank vault door, protecting your data from invaders.
Tip #2 - Ensure you govern your data
This is your second line of defense and ensures that if your walls are breached you still have other security measures in place. But, what does this mean?
These tips seem common sense, but most companies focus only on ‘controlling entry points’ and often forget or lose track of data within the business as it is shared and used. Couple this with sporadic security training and we have a risky cocktail for any business.
So, as you embark on the path to protect your invaluable data, remember: the steps you take today will shape your resilience tomorrow.
