Data is your organization’s lifeblood. Ensuring it doesn’t fall into the wrong hands must be a top priority. Data security is a continuous process where you’ll need to protect your data against all threats—whether your data is in use, at rest, or in transit.

The first step in ensuring data security is to determine what data you have and categorize it as sensitive, restricted, unstructured, or redundant, depending on the nature of the data. It’s not possible to enforce a standard, organization-wide policy for categorizing data, as departments may differ on what forms of data they consider as confidential. For instance, the HR department might consider employees’ PII and salary details as confidential, whereas the marketing department might reserve that classification for leads and customer information. But as a general rule of thumb, any data that can uniquely identify a person, plus data involving the organization’s customers, revenue, and copyrighted material, can be considered confidential.

The second step in data security is to audit your most sensitive files and folders and monitor user activity, file modifications, and permission changes. You should also be on the lookout for user accounts that are exhibiting unusual privilege escalations and accessing files they are not authorized to. Organizations can achieve all of this by having a solid data loss prevention (DLP) strategy in place.
