Safeguard Your Data

Posted: 18 Aug 2017 05:23 AM PDT

Safeguarding your business and personal data has never been more difficult or more important. How do you safeguard sensitive/confidential data? The manner of protection often depends on what kind of data you are safeguarding and how important or sensitive it is to you, your organization, or your customers.

Here are some tips on how to protect your data at work and at home.

Password-Protect Your Access
Always use a strong password or pass-phrase to protect access to your data.

Identify Where the Data Is Stored
Have specific places within your network or computer where you store sensitive/confidential data. Those network shares, hard drives, servers, or system folders can then have specific protection methods used to keep them more secure.

Encrypt Stored Sensitive/Confidential Data
Whenever possible, encrypt stored sensitive/confidential data, whether it is being permanently or temporarily stored. This can help prevent unintended disclosure even if your system has been compromised.
