Why Data Workflow And Security Should Be Taken Seriously
- If you run a small organization, the chances are that with time, you will become big. If the reverse happens, your organization still needs stable, relevant, and trustworthy cyber-security protocols.
- A malware intrusion through one endpoint can easily be transmitted to other components in your workflow. That is, if you receive a malware in your computer through an email, and you intend to send the email to employees, you will be unknowingly sending the malware to other computers.
- Data security ensures that you can check those who have access to certain information. There should be information level-3 employees can access that will be inaccessible to level-2 employees.
How to Implement Secure Data Workflow
Identify all the data workflow – data creation, transmission, and storage.
An organization must determine how and where data is transmitted. Data entry points include emails, web, and portable devices. Destination of data includes employees, clients, and customers, amongst others.
Unify the data security system.
Some organizations usually try to treat each entry point of data as separate entities. While this may work, it exposes the organization to the following threats. The person in charge of security may forget to update the security protocol on one entry point. Dealing with several entry points at the same time can also be cumbersome and more expensive.
Encrypt, quarantine, mask, delete, and secure.
- Encrypt: Apply strong and stubborn encryption to data that is shared outside your organization’s network.
- Quarantine: Move sensitive data to a specified location where only people with access can get to it. Sometimes, the only person with access to such a sensitive file may be you.
- Mask: Replace sensitive texts with special characters such as @#%$)&*^
- Delete: Permanently delete sensitive files you do not want to get out. Always remember to empty the contents of your recycle bin.
- Secure: Secure data from malware using reliable anti-malware and security protocol.
