Data Protecting for Enterprises

Data is crucial to any company. It helps it function efficiently and profitably. However, businesses must keep in mind the necessity of having access to and abundant data with the obligation to keep the customer’s data private and secure. This is a challenge posed by new and changing privacy laws, such as Europe’s GDPR and California’s CCPA as well as traditional laws like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Securities and Exchange Commission rules for protecting financial information of shareholders, as well as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard for data about consumer payments.

To ensure data protection, the first step is to record all your data and protect it. This involves identifying, classifying and determining access levels of data in accordance with its sensitivity. It is also crucial to create a security policy that protects your data even when the data is in motion or at rest. Using a tool to monitor and detect activities in the file and detect suspicious patterns will help you detect suspicious activity and quickly detect weaknesses that could be a result of outdated or misconfigured software.

A comprehensive backup and recovery plan that includes physical storage media is vital. Not to be left out, it is important to enforce meaningful measures of security, from background checks for potential hires and regular training for current employees, as well as terminating employees who no longer require access to vital systems. It’s also important to create a recovery plan in case of natural disasters or a man-made one.
