The internet is plagued by viruses and malware as well as hackers and scammers who wish nothing more than to access your files and steal your personal data for their personal gain. Remember that just a few years ago, huge companies like Target and Yahoo suffered from massive cyber-attacks. You now not only have to worry about external cyber-attacks, but also who can access sensitive data internally as well. Building a security-first culture will reduce risk to the organization and increase trust with business partners and customers.
Document Management Security Settings
Preventing data breaches and maintaining compliance are at the top of every organization’s agenda. It is essential for IT and security teams to develop a more cohesive partnership that embraces collaboration to enable business and drive future success. Access control within the document management security settings can help to establish authorized individuals for certain documents while barring access from anyone else. This ensures that sensitive information can only be seen by qualified individuals.
Have Your Hard Drives Professionally Erased
The most responsible thing you can do before recycling a hard drive, or even disposing of one, is to completely erase the hard drive. If you don’t, you risk exposing sensitive personal data that you previously deleted, data like social security numbers, account numbers, passwords, etc. When you are disposing of an old printer, the information may no longer be visibly indexed, but it is still present on the hard drive. So have the hard drive on the printer erased. You do not want to be sending sensitive data outside the company when you dispose of old hard drives.
When Your Data Is Secure, Your Business Becomes Unstoppable
The Data Security and Protection Toolkit is an online self-assessment tool that allows organizations to measure their performance against the National Data Guardian’s 10 data security standards. Performing regular tasks like printing, scanning, and copying leaves an imprint of data on a system’s hard drive. A data security kit improves document security. Data encryption, overwrite capabilities, and more keep your sensitive data secure.
The cost of cybercrime in 2022 is estimated to have been over 5 billion dollars and the chance of being a victim of a cybercrime last year was very high. If your system is unprotected, and your office is lacking in cyber-security guidelines and document security, the chances are high that your business will be affected.
