Is Your Sensitive Business Data Secure?

Is all of your sensitive business data secure? Far too many companies have their financial, HR, and customer data on networks that are not secured. When your network is not properly secured, it is at risk of being accessed externally as well as internally. Release of company financials as well as pay, bonuses, and employee agreements can cause significant problems. Loss of customer data is even worse.

We recently met with a hotel that had all of their data on an open network. They did not realize that their customer data was at risk of being accessed by hackers from Russia, China, or anywhere else in the world. They risked liability with the credit card networks as well as bad publicity if their network was hacked and customer credit card information stolen.

Keeping Your Data Secure

You need both technology and effective policies to keep your data secure. Securing your network is a good start, but it is only the first step. You also need strict policies in place to ensure that all sensitive data is properly stored where it can be protected. This requires a good understanding of the workflows in your business as well as user habits.

While you may be able to secure your data using internal resources, it is at least a good idea to have an external audit to ensure it is secure. Or, you can choose to use an outside expert who has experience in securing data networks as well as developing effective security policies.
