Most businesses have taken at least the most basic security measures to protect their information systems. Firewalls, anti-virus programs and spam filters are part of most company information technology profiles, but in an age of malware, ransomware and constant malicious innovation, they aren’t enough to completely protect your data.
Your business has a responsibility to your stakeholders and regulators to maintain compliance standards and protect your company’s intellectual property. Not only does proper protection ensure that your data is secure, it also protects your company’s reputation and performance, ensuring that your customers and contacts maintain their faith in your accountability.
A proactive position on data security requires a seven-layer approach, combining hardware, software and policy measures that protect your data from all directions. Each layer builds upon the last, to ensure that no matter what the threat, your systems are secured. Over the next three weeks, we’ll explore the layers that work together to ensure total protection.
