Digital transformation is key to business success but is also a major vulnerability when it comes to data privacy. Learn about the approaches, methodologies, and technology that can help you face privacy challenges during your digital transformation.
There is a lot more data at risk today than there has been in the past. The explosion of personal data being collected, harnessed and used means that companies have to be increasingly aware of how they manage it.
In the last post in my series on Data Security, we defined a process for identifying critical assets and intellectual property that are worth protecting. Now it’s time to discuss the second process, namely evaluating threats against and vulnerabilities of these identified critical assets.
From a data security practice, we want two things. First, a list of critical digital assets: we can only protect items already in a digital form. And second, a confidence rating from zero to one hundred percent (0-100%) that we have identified all of the critical assets we either have an interest in or obligation to protect.
The same tools that can be used to discover, classify and disposition data for Customer Information Management purposes can be used to protect it, too. Secure Content Management, our comprehensive data governance suite can do all of that to both structured and unstructured data.
