As more and more companies experience crippling security breaches, the wave of compromised data is on the rise. 2020 has seen more than its fair share of high profile data breaches and cyber-attacks, with a number of the world’s biggest and best known brands falling victim to online attacks.
A recent report by Kaspersky suggested that there had been as many as 726 million confirmed cyber-attacks since the start of the year, putting 2020 on course to rack up somewhere in the region of 1.5 billion cyber-attacks for the year. That’s an eye watering statistic and one that will have serious impact on businesses around the world. Business data only becomes a target when it is of value to a third party. Different kinds of data are more or less valuable to third parties and represent different levels of risk to a business. These types of information attract the attention of third parties for whom the data has value. Personal, financial and health information can be sold and used for marketing, fraud and identity theft. Intellectual property can be sold and used to develop products and services similar to those of business.
Keeping sensitive business data secure is a never-ending mission for most companies. The negative impacts of a data breach can be massive—which is why so many companies spend considerable resources on securing company data. While organizations can keep their perimeter security and other protective measures in place, what they need in addition is a data-centric solution that allows to tightly control who can read specific files and data sets.
