Data Protection

The rising costs and increased media coverage of data breaches and the continued escalation of threats facing organizations has led to information security, particularly data protection, being discussed at the highest level. Boards and audit committees are expecting their information security functions to proactively report on the capabilities, maturity and effectiveness of their data protection activities. ​

Whether an organization’s business risk relates to the protection of customer data, proprietary information or intellectual property, implementing technology addresses only part of the solution designed to prevent, detect and respond to data loss events. Technology implementations can be costly, and many organizations complain they have not seen the value of data protection tools demonstrated after implementation. Too often, information security functions struggle to make effective use of data protection tools, and expensive products turn to shelf-ware. ​

Enabling the data protection program with an effective structure is an important step in making sure the right stakeholders are engaged in a productive way. Organizations should develop a top-down strategy and approach, which involves working with relevant departments such as the legal, compliance, internal audit and privacy functions to determine which types of data need to be protected. Workshops with key stakeholders in each relevant part of the business can be used to gain consensus and develop a prioritized strategy for protecting sensitive data. Engaging the right level of stakeholders within the business units is critical, and it is imperative that consistent guidance, training and enablers be provided to the business​
