Data Loss in Business: What to Do to Minimize Impact?

As far as data loss is concerned, prevention is always the best solution. More than ever, business information is very valuable because it is through the data they have that companies can analyze their audience, define marketing campaigns and guide the entire business strategy. However, there are more and more threats to information security, so it is essential to devise strategies to minimize the impact in case of data loss in companies. In today’s article, we mentioned some ways to minimize the damage caused by data loss!

Backup in different environments

It is essential that the most important information of your company has several copies, so that there is the risk of being lost forever. If in the past, saving the data on external disks or pen drives was sufficient, nowadays it is advisable to use the Cloud, as it is one of the most reliable and reliable solutions on the market. In addition to having your data stored in a secure location, you can access it from anywhere and from any device, as long as you have Internet access.

Promote conditional access

Often companies don’t condition access to certain documents by some employees and this can compromise information security. It is important that each employee has only access to the data that he or she really needs, otherwise, if there is a computer attack, it is difficult to find out where it came from. It is also essential that companies block access to sensitive information over unsafe public networks. In this way, the probability of suffering external attacks is minimized on a large scale.

Have a recovery service in the Cloud

It is very important to have a recovery service in the Cloud, so that even in the event of computer disasters there is no total loss of data. RAAS, for example, is a dedicated infrastructure with selective replication. This service enables near-instant disaster activation on virtual servers in a remote environment. In this way, even in the case of more extreme disasters, the information is easily recovered, not interfering with the usual performance of the company.

Encryption and data masking

Data encryption transforms information by using an algorithm so that there is no easy and perceivable access by third parties, but only by those who have the correct encryption key, which shows its true meaning. Data masking creates a version similar to the original data in terms of structure but without revealing its true information. Its original format remains unchanged but the data presented is fictitious. Masked data can be used in test and auditing environments, not compromising the result of the analysis, but always ensuring the confidentiality of sensitive information. It is essential to use one of these tools so that even if the information is collected by a third party it can not be deciphered.

Tendências de segurança da informação para os próximos anos | Datapeers | Proteja a sua informaçãoPosted on8:25 am - Jul 16, 2018

[…] Armazenar dados na Cloud é uma tendência de segurança da informação cada vez mais presente nas empresas de todo o Mundo. Contudo, nem sempre as empresas utilizam esta ferramenta da melhor forma, cometendo erros que podem colocar em risco a segurança e privacidade da sua informação. A utilização correta do armazenamento na Cloud pode ter benefícios enormes para as empresas, pelo que é essencial utilizar a nuvem da melhor forma possível. Nada é cem por cento infalível e uma das principais desvantagens da tecnologia em nuvem é que os dados e arquivos de uma empresa correm o risco de ficar desprotegidos. As questões de segurança devem ser planeadas numa fase inicial no momento de transição do local para a nuvem. A informação que é realmente muito sensível não deverá ser migrada para o exterior. Contudo, cada vez mais a tecnologia em nuvem dá provas de que é segura e os riscos relacionados com a segurança serão cada vez mais reduzidos. […]
