Safe and Secure Data Management

It is vital to business operations that data management be secure and safe. Data management and protection is critical to business operations.

It is important to first define the types of information you collect from customers, employees and any other sources. This is important, because you can then update data storage and security policy to account for each type of information.

You should then identify and classify the sensitive data so that it is difficult to manipulate, delete or access. This is often achieved by using a tool that scans the file system and provides a report on what data types are contained there.

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 can help limit the damage that a hacker can cause, especially when using an employee’s username or password to gain access to your information.

You should also make sure that you have multiple copies of your data so that you can restore them easily if necessary. This helps to protect your data from a range of threats including hardware failure, electrical surges and theft.

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 data that is no longer in use, or that you no longer need to retain.
