DATA LEAKAGE & DATA LOSS PREVENTION
REINFORCE THE FORTRESS FOR YOUR SENSITIVE INFORMATION
The problem with data leakage is that the issue can often be subtle and go undetected for a very long time. Data loss can also be caused by human error which ultimately leads to disastrous consequences.
UNDERSTANDING DATA LEAKAGE
In a nutshell, data leakage occurs when unauthorised data transmission has taken place from inside an organisation to an external party. Data leakage can manifest in various ways. It could be a result of an insider threat where personnel play a part in the breach, phishing where a cybercriminal pretends to be a credible source from the company and ask for sensitive information to be sent to them or some kind of malware/spyware.
Regardless of how data leakage takes place, this breach of data security can lead to severe detrimental outcomes that surpass the loss of revenue. It can tarnish business reputation and credibility, creating a long term impact that a business may not recover from.
TARGETING THE PROBLEM BY PREVENTION
Astute businesses look to Data Loss Prevention (DLP) strategies to detect and prevent data breaches, unauthorised modification, access and destruction of data. There are several ways that an organisation can choose to protect their data from loss or leakage including:
- Cyber awareness training for the team
- Use of encryption keys
- Backing up data in a secure and authorised location
- Set permission guidelines throughout the business
As the nature of businesses vary, so do the temperament of their IT environment and personnel mindset. DLP strategies should be designed in a way sympathetic to the business needs and the threat environment.
