5 Steps to a Secure Document Protection Plan

httppictures.brafton.comliveimagesProtecting-documents-means-changing-default-security-settings_16000937_800884792_0_0_14065396_300A document protection plan can help to ensure that your documents are controlled, tracked and protected. As part of this plan, companies should consider their password policies, the format for their documents, and the delivery mechanism for distributing their files.
 
 

1. Make it a priority, from the top down

Yes, IT is responsible for providing solutions driven by the business need, but it is usually not up to them to identify it. It is essential that all levels of management should buy in to the need to protect intellectual assets, files, and sensitive company data, as it impacts the bottom line, and affects the digital safety and operations of the business. Ensure that executives actively promote secure document sharing policies (document hygiene) so that it becomes part of the corporate culture, and guide departments and staff so that tools and processes are successfully implemented.

2. Identify your “crown jewels”

Determine which documents and files you most need to protect. These are most likely documents that would cause revenue loss or damage to your reputation if leaked. Make a list of these documents and their workflows, and ensure these documents receive protection by utilizing a good DRM solution.

3. Set a password policy

The ability to set up passwords to safeguard content is just one of the advantages of comprehensive document protection plans. Choose a password protection solution that “travels with the document” so that no matter where it resides or ends up, the document itself is protected.

4. Select your document format based on how documents will be accessed

Many companies prefer portable document format (PDF) files because they are a common and familiar format in today’s business environment. More than one billion PDFs exist today, and these files use an open standard that is trusted by many businesses across the globe. These files can be opened on desktops and laptops using Adobe Reader which is standard on most computers.

BYOD, or “bring your own device” is becoming the standard in companies today, and the need for more flexibility in delivering secure documents means that more and more companies are also turning to web-friendly document formats such as HTML5 that can be easily viewed on any device – desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile. And the technology behind HTML5 is ever-improving with more features, improvements, and standards being applied.

5. Determine how your documents will be distributed

When you are considering a document protection plan, keep in mind how your users will be accessing your documents, and where. Even if you are sharing documents internally within a secure environment, such as an LMS (learning management system), CMS (content management system), or virtual data room, does the document remain secured when it is sent externally to a customer, vendor or supplier? Consider how that document might be viewed or accessed and whether you can trust their IT network or mobile security program.

Chose a distribution methodology that will offer the end-user a comfort level opening the document on a variety of devices, and document protection that will travel with the document so that no matter where it ends up, you have control over it.

Cost fallout of a data breach felt for years

Experiencing a significant document loss, or even a major data breach, is like having a financial bomb go off in your company.

Recently, the Sony Pictures cyber attack was in the news. While the costs are still to be tallied, estimates of the impacts are in the billions and it’s considered to be the largest in history so far. Not only emails and data were taken during the network intrusion, but unsecured documents of all kinds, including confidential contracts with talent, employee payroll and benefit information, and home addresses. It is likely to take years to determine the full impact. While it is yet to be determined if another government was to blame, the fact remains, if huge companies with their enormous security budgets and infrastructure are vulnerable, all companies, large, small, and in-between, are vulnerable.

In 2013, when Target reported that the credit card information of 110 million customers was floating around in cyberspace, its fourth quarter profit fell almost 50%, second quarter profit for 2014 sank by 62%, full-year earnings forecast has been lowered and total expenses related to the breach stand at $148 million including related expenses.

Home Depot’s data breach left almost 60 million payment cards vulnerable to misuse. Investigation-related costs are pegged at $62 million.

For many companies it’s difficult to calculate the direct and indirect impacts of a data breach or document loss. It can vary widely depending on the nature of the incident. The 2014 Cost of Data Breach Study: Global Analysis reported that the average cost for each lost or stolen record was $145, the average cost of an incident is $3.5 million.

It’s no joke. And many companies (not just the mega corps) need start to taking the threat to their content seriously. Hackers will probe your security with various recon and vulnerability scans, and target businesses in industries that are known to be less likely to deploy multi-layered security technologies and have less robust governance. They will specifically go after the valuable information contained in documents that are less protected, in transit, shared, synced to apps, or on devices.

Cost Breakdown – how much would an incident cost your company?

  • Loss of customers and/or revenue
  • Loss of intellectual property, digital assets, or trade secrets
  • Investigative (forensic) services fees
  • Legal costs (suits, counter-suits, class-action)
  • Infrastructure repair and upgrades
  • PR communications services – damage control
  • Marketing – rebuilding brand reputation, trust, & sales pipeline

Exercise:

Estimate your potential costs in each of these areas assuming a small, medium, or large incident with your most valuable or sensitive documents. What would even a 10% loss of revenue mean? How much risk is your organization willing to assume in light of the potential top-to-bottom-line cost estimates?

For many companies, it’s becoming a necessity to ensure all corporate data and content is safe – wherever it ends up.

Highlight and Markup Your Secure Document: Vitrium Releases New Features for Protectedpdf® Secure PDF Software

[Vancouver, Oct 22, 2014] Vitrium™, maker of Protectedpdf® document DRM security software, announced today that its proprietary HTML5 web viewer (for viewing secured files via a web browser) will be upgraded to allow users (the readers of the document) to highlight and markup text within their secured documents.

Readers can save their highlights and annotations within the document, which is saved “server-side” so the reader can open the document on a different device at a later time – their desktop, laptop, or tablet device – and see their original highlights and annotations. The new feature will be included as part of Vitrium’s Protectedpdf® version 5.2 – due for release in early November.

To find out about all the new features for Protectedpdf®, go here.

Vitrium will be adding a range of additional new functionality to its web enabled document technology that will allow a reader to access secure documents via an HTML link:

  1. Custom login interface. The login for the secure HTML document will be customizable, allowing for branding and messaging opportunities for document owners, and readers will appreciate having a seamless login experience with their protected documents and materials.
  2. Single Sign-On. The online viewing of the document will now support “single sign-on” from a secure web portal or site, enabling a much more integrated and seamless experience for readers accessing materials. This “behind the scenes” feature may require a service engagement with Vitrium to integrate Pro and Enterprise versions of Protectedpdf®.
  3. Social DRM. The web view of the document now supports the same “social DRM” features we introduced into Protectedpdf® v5 desktop view, enabling administrators to apply a layer of security and a watermark to their documents, without requiring a login method to unlock the document. This lightweight DRM option is especially attractive to document owners who don’t require full security, but want the benefit of deterrence.
  4. Multiple Watermarks. The online version of the secure document now supports multiple watermarks enabling owners to stamp documents with however many watermarks required. This option is only available in the Pro and Enterprise versions of Protectedpdf®.

“Vitrium’s Protectedpdf® continues to deliver excellent reader experiences. With our new agile development framework, we’re listening to our customers and delivering improvements to our product in a much more responsive and timely manner. I think our customers and their readers will especially appreciate the new highlighting and annotating functionality available in the web viewer component of Protectedpdf® (the secure HTML link).”

Susan Daly, President & CEO
Vitrium Systems Inc.

Customers Love Protectedpdf’s New Features:

Protectedpdf New Interface

1. Fresh and Faster Interface
A newly designed administrative interface modernizes, simplifies and streamlines the tool making it much more intuitive and useful for Protectedpdf® administrators. It looks awesome!

A new setup wizard, tooltips, and easy-to-understand graphics, help customers get up and running with the new interface quickly, and enable users to process a secure document faster. Pro and Enterprise customers are able to access these features with an upgrade.

2. Watermarking Enhancements
Protectedpdf® Pro and Enterprise customers can now have improved watermarking with multiple true (transparent and/or diagonal) watermarks, dynamic (user triggered) watermarks, and watermarks that can span multiple lines (they contain line breaks). These enhancements offer content creators the ability to not only protect documents better with more robust watermarks, but also limit the visual interference a watermark can have on branded documents should it be desired.

3. New “Social DRM”
All customers now have the option to choose “Social DRM”, a lightweight DRM solution that simply seals the document with a generic, text-based watermark (transparent and/or diagonal) that needs no passwords or logins to open! This new feature is an answer to many Vitrium customer requests to have robust DRM for some documents, and a totally hassle-free reader experience for other documents.

4. Web Viewer Bookmark Support
The web viewer now displays bookmarks from the original PDF, and shows these bookmarks in the toolbar. Users will be able to use these bookmarks to click to various sections in the document, making it easier to navigate long complex PDF documents.

5. Hardened security
All hosted Standard, Pro and Enterprise customers now have built-in: AES 128-bit encryption, MITM attack prevention, Replay attack prevention, and a more robust locking methodology is used behind the scenes to seal the document. Enterprise customers with installed solutions are able to take advantage of these improvements when they update their Protectedpdf® Enterprise Server.

6. Unlimited Customizable Document Policy Templates
Administrators now can apply custom policy templates at the document level. This makes it much easier for document owners to save common settings as a policy (template) and easily apply them to new documents as they are sealed. Admins can store as many policies as they like and apply them to any applicable document.

Many of the new features have been upgraded automatically for Standard, Pro and hosted Enterprise customers, and some are available as options in an upgrade. Installed Enterprise customers require an update to their Protectedpdf® Enterprise Server.

7. Improved API
With the new release, Vitrium has brought the Protectedpdf® API into alignment with best practices in API development using the RESTful development architecture. Pro and Enterprise customers can have integration up and running in minutes and will notice a simplified, intuitive and clean API interface.

“We’re delighted that our customers are reacting so positively to the improvements we’ve made to Protectedpdf®. We’ve worked hard to listen to our customers, and respond with improvements that make our software easier to use and more functional. This upgrade was one of the biggest upgrades to Protectedpdf® that we have made to date, and we’ll continue to evolve and grow so that Protectedpdf® keeps its position as the most hassle-free document protection tool available in the market.” – Susan Daly, President & CEO, Vitrium Systems Inc.

1 A Man-in-the-Middle attack, is a form of active eavesdropping in which the attacker makes independent connections with the victims and relays messages between them, making them believe that they are talking directly to each other over a private connection, when in fact the entire conversation is controlled by the attacker. (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Man-in-the-middle_attack)
2 Replay attack is a form of network attack in which a valid data transmission is maliciously or fraudulently repeated or delayed. This is carried out either by the originator or by an adversary who intercepts the data and retransmits it, possibly as part of a masquerade attack by IP packet substitution (such as stream cipher attack). (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stream_cipher_attack)

It’s all About Togetherness – Vitrium Invites Channel Partners to Play in the DRM and PDF Document Security Space

The new Vitrium Channel Program is designed to help businesses meet the increasing market demand for mobile friendly document security solutions that travel with the document, and are plugin-free.

Roughly 60%(1) of workplace readers use more than two devices, plus readers share files more than ever before(2). These shared documents (and the content in them) are more vulnerable today for theft and loss in any industry. Recent news of spectacular security failures in the document sharing space has made markets more aware of security issues in the cloud file sharing market in general, and this understanding, coupled with tremendous overall growth in this sector, means that companies can partner with Vitrium to capitalize on these growth opportunities. Together, we can help more customers protect their content better, and that helps make content a little safer for everyone.

For more information about Vitrium’s Channel Partner Program, download the free white paper “Secure Your Future”.

Vitrium comes to market with four new partnership opportunities:

  1. Referral Partner: The “Referral Partner” program entices go-getters to go get leads and bring them to Vitrium for a commission. Vitrium hopes to attract business in the SMB market with this offering.
  2.  

  3. Reseller Partner: Vitrium’s “Reseller Partner” is aimed at VAR’s (value-added resellers) and other businesses. The Reseller program has 3 tiers: the “Sentry”, “Guardian” and “Vanguard” designed to match the seller’s business. The program offers several benefits such as discounts, co-marketing, joint business planning sessions, sales training, and more, depending on the selected tier.
  4.  

  5. OEM Partner: Vitrium wants to enable software developers to access greater market potential by offering document protection embedded into their solutions. Integrating Protectedpdf® will and shorten development cycles and give OEM partners access to a wide range of partner benefits.
  6.  

  7. Strategic Partner: With its “Strategic Partner” program, Vitrium hopes to build relationships with companies that have joint interests in our markets and align our business and development strategies to effectively compete.

All the programs offer a high level of personalized attention from Vitrium and the support and tools needed for success.

Vitrium offers a few simple suggestions to consider when assessing which documents are best suited for document security.
