Security Management Data

Data security now ranks as the most important aspect of Data Management. Digital transformation encouraged capturing everything that an individual or application does while connected to the Internet in tremendous detail. People working from home, using various devices that fall outside of corporate oversight or monitoring tools, further complicates sound data security management. More startling is how easy a personal device can affect an entire organization with a computer virus or open the door to a hacker. Government regulations for data control, such as the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), provide guidance and fines to force organizations to improve data security management. Still, there is little regulation of personal security management.

What is Data security management?

There are many definitions of data security management, and data security solutions abound. Every organization must clearly define and communicate the data security program and data security services it offers, as these will differ slightly from place to place. In general, data security management is:

  • The practice of ensuring that data, no matter its form, is protected while in your possession and use from unauthorized access or corruption.
  • The blending of both digital (cyber) and physical processes to protect data.
  • The monitoring of data acquisition, use, storage, retrieval, and deletion such that data is not corrupted at any point in its lineage.
  • The implementation of technology defenses that prevent data loss prevention from internal malicious actions or hacking.
  • Encouraging applications and services developers to test against data security standards to improve data leak prevention.
  • The policies that train and govern individuals on the importance of data security and how best to protect themselves and the business.
  • The security of data exchanged with external applications or services.
  • Taking advantage of the use of encrypted cloud storage or encrypted cloud networks to secure data transfers and sharing.
  • The management of data center security, even if you benefit from cloud services, to ensure that your most precious non-people resource is safe.

Data security management practices are not just about sensitive or business-critical information. Data security management practices protect you and your organization from unintentional mistakes or hackers corrupting or stealing your precious resources.
