Fortune 100 companies and other organizations responsible for managing large volumes of highly sensitive information are often at greater risk than smaller firms with less valuable data. Unfortunately, that's just the way it is and decision-makers need to implement innovative document protection tools to keep confidential resources safe.
In today's highly mobile business world, security can no longer be an afterthought, according to a report by Ecommerce Times. Simply put, executives who deploy preventative solutions in the wake of an incident will find that they are unable to remain competitive and are more likely to expose sensitive information.
For this reason, among others, decision-makers need to assess whether a data breach can happen to their firm by locating and fixing any vulnerabilities, the news source said. Monitoring employee activity is a good way to mitigate risk.
InformationWeek said companies need to implement robust identity management solutions, which keep unauthorized individuals away from sensitive resources. By deploying these tools, organizations will become less likely to experience internal breaches caused by employees inadvertently or maliciously exposing confidential information.
