In today’s era of information, businesses are experiencing overloading of data they collect, store, and process. Currently, data is moving through users, devices, applications, and services more than ever before. Working with customers, partners, and employees by sharing sensitive information inside and outside of organizational parameters is a concurrent task for every business. Woefully, most of the time businesses slipped to measure the importance of the data they are handling.
Data is a collection of facts, such as numbers, words, concepts, or instructions in a formalized manner, which should be suitable for communication, interpretation, or processing by a human or electronic machine. As technologies become perceived and more efficient, every day it brings different types of data. Data are simply facts or figures — bits of information, but not information itself. When data are processed, interpreted, organized, structured, or presented to make them meaningful or useful, they are called Information. It always has some meaningful values for the receiver.
So, how do you know organizational data is safe? To ensure the protection of sensitive information, you need to start by identifying which data is sensitive, what kind of protection it requires, how to apply for protection, and how to track usage of moving data.
According to Riskbased, Data breaches exposed 4.1 billion records in the first half of 2019. Information is a critical asset of any organization, and serious steps need to be taken to protect it from exposure and breaches.
When information is accessed or shared, there is a chance of data leaks such as intellectual property, personally identifiable information (PII), financial information, health information, or sensitive company memos. But trying to block everything discourages productivity and innovation. It eventually leads to employee inconvenience which goes up based on the degree of restriction. An effective Information Protection Management system can balance data protection with productivity by focusing on security at the data level.
