Data Security is a business issue
Many IT managers assume that data security is primarily a matter of keeping data under lock and key. In their datacentre, on their servers and in their applications. A good starting point, but insufficient.
Why insufficient? Because of the nature of data. Data is not static. It is often in transit, i.e. moving between applications, between systems and between applications and users. In addition, data is not singular. Backups are made and are kept in multiple locations, especially so with email. Sensitive files are sitting in inboxes of all addressees, in the sent box of the sender, on the server. And finally: the importance of data is context sensitive. Information that must be kept secret from one, is a necessity for another. And information about today’s crucial transactions has lost its meaning next week.
This implies that the most effective security approach takes the following into account: context of use (user, rights, place, time, device), the lifecycle of the data (hot news, old news) and its laws and regulations, on top of the usual ‘digital vault’ approach. By tackling Data Security from the perspective of your business strategy and processes; and taking human behaviour and environmental factors such as laws and regulations into account, you achieve a data security architecture with long-term sustainability and room for changing circumstances. This requires a security service provider that combines their knowledge of your business and business processes with their in-depth knowledge of the possibilities and limitions of specific technologies and platforms
