Cloud services enable widespread collaboration and sharing of data, but protecting that data requires modern tools and thinking.
Today, people create, store and share data in many locations. As workstyles become more mobile and the hybrid workforce becomes the norm, people are accessing and storing data in third-party clouds, at home, on mobile devices, as well as at work, creating significant concerns for business managers and security teams. Fortunately, modern techniques ensure that security policy travels inside all documents.
Managing data in the Modern Workplace is a challenge. Governance techniques must be reviewed and updated to accommodate staff using multiple devices, from multiple locations, who have access to third-party storage locations. With modern collaboration solutions now allowing users to share information with people both inside and out of their organisation, good governance is more essential than ever.
Data Loss Prevention
Legislation in Australia and elsewhere now require organisations to take reasonable steps towards protecting their data. Every Australian business must develop a practical Data Loss Prevention (DLP) strategy and implement a solution that prevents inadvertent data loss.
Data Classification and Labelling
All data needs to be appropriately classified and labelled so that the content can be kept secure. This allows appropriate security policy that corresponds with the classification of the document to be applied.
