Data Security Policy & Governance

Data Security Policy & Governance

Ensuring compliance by securing digital identities and data

A data security policy provides  organizations with a framework to operate its business and protect customers without interruption or damage from bad actors.

Depending on the nature of the compliance requirements in your industry, some policies may be more complex than others. An organization may also implement  stricter policies than what’s required by outside forces, depending on its tolerance for risk.

Whether you’re a healthcare provider protecting the confidentiality of patient data, a merchant processing, storing or transmitting credit cards, or a financial services institution protecting millions of dollars, the need to prevent outages and breaches are key to ensuring digital security that could result in irreparable damage to your enterprise.

A data security policy is only effective when every gap is covered, and every certificate is secure. Securing digital identities across the enterprise serves as a basis for enabling the strong authentication, encryption and signing used to strengthen IT operating policies and procedures.

Meeting data security policy and governance requirements is a familiar struggle

Issues and problems that provide obstacles to a successful implementation often include:

  • Critical systems and sensitive data protected with plain-text passwords
  • Decrypted sensitive data remaining on multiple devices or in public locations
  • Limitations within some devices restricting the ability to enforce policy
  • Systems set up by individual users or groups residing “off-grid” making monitoring and enforcing for policy adherence difficult
  • A regulatory environment that shifts with increasingly strict requirements
  • New technologies having unforeseen security risks
  • Application code that is either not signed or signed in a manner that is untrusted
