5 Ways to Safeguard Your Data

 

When constructing a comprehensive data security strategy, companies should consider the type of information they collect, how long it is kept, and who has access to it.  Employees are the most cited source of compromise and strong Password Policies help reduce the risk of a breach.  Company-wide cybersecurity awareness and training programs should also be implemented.

Whereas policies, training and awareness are key to the foundation of a comprehensive data security strategy, IT security solutions will protect your technology assets and safeguard your data. These 5 solutions can have a big impact on the security of your company’s data.

  1. Make sure systems’ anti-virus, anti-spam is up to date and software firewalls are securely configured and well maintained. As of June 2015, 12 new strains of malware comes out every minute.  Since 2006, the total discovered malware strains is 22,393,098 per G DATA’s biannual malware report.  Sometimes a security appliance or hardware firewall isn’t enough to protect your network. Having an up to date antivirus solution on each system, which includes anti-spam and a software firewall, is the last line of defense for protection.
  2. Ensure operating systems and 3rd party applications aren’t vulnerable with a Patch Management solution.  Patch Management solutions automate testing and implementation of software patches: it’s the smart, efficient way to close vulnerabilities in Windows and in third-party software products.
  3. Comprehensive Policy Management for devices and applications can secure the most vulnerable targets for malware attack. Policy Management is a cost-efficient way to enforce corporate policies.  You can secure the most vulnerable targets for malware attack – such as USB sticks, websites and unknown applications.
  4. Implement Mobile Device Management policies for employee smart phones and tablets. MDM puts you and your IT managers back in charge of the organization’s mobile device landscape. With a range of smart, centralized functions including antivirus and anti-theft protection – a good MDM setup enables your business to manage your iOS and Android mobile devices effectively and securely.
  5. Utilize Alerting and Reporting through a centralized console for quick remediation and compliance audit. Alerting and Reporting provides pre-defined notifications via email of a potential breach within the organization.  Being able to quickly run on-demand reports to reflect the current status of all managed devices lets you get an up to date security snapshot of your network.
