The primary challenge for today’s information security leaders is reducing the risk of a data breach that could compromise their organization. Leaders must have a comprehensive understanding of their environment not just from a hardware and software perspective, but also a process and data perspective. While more organizations are adopting cloud solutions, many do not understand how data is entering or leaving their environment. This can lead to uncertainty around the scope of their compliance objectives or the effectiveness of their security controls.
While many information protection service providers approach information protection from a technology perspective, an organization’s security leaders are best served working with a partner who understands how an organization processes, stores, transmits and accesses critical datasets and can apply technology as a supplemental tool vs. as the exclusive tool. The ideal partner will also be adept at advising the organization beyond its IT/security teams as program failures often occur due to insider threats (intentional or unintentional) or requirements that are unsustainable to day-to-day operations. This will also help security teams avoid reactively responding to audit results and privacy requirements, then scrambling to understand the scale of sensitive information. It will also make it easier to identify opportunities to consolidate and manage critical information, streamline reporting of adherence to privacy demands and optimize costs through decommission of redundant data and efficient application of security technologies.
