Safe and Secure Data Management

It is vital to business operations that data management be secure and safe. Data management is essential to the success of any business.

The first step in safe and secure data management is to define the type of information that you collect from your customers, employees and other sources. This is vital because it allows you to update your security and data storage policies according to each category of information.

Next, identify and classify your sensitive data to make it more difficult to access, modify or delete. A data discovery engine can be used to scan your filesystem and report on the data types.

Once you know what kind of data you possess, you can create access control policies that will ensure that only those with a need to view the information are allowed access. This will limit the damage caused by hackers, especially when they use a password or username of an employee to gain access.

Last but not least, be sure to make multiple copies of all your data. This will allow you to easily restore them if required. This helps protect your data in a number of ways, including from hardware failures or electrical surges.

You should take the following steps to ensure the safety of your data: * Perform a Data Mapping in order to determine what types of data are stored in your database, and which ones are most important for your business* Backup as much of your data as possible and store it in different, but just as secure, locations2. Delete or destroy any data that you are no longer using or that you do not need to keep.
