Data Classification and Profiling

Human error is now the biggest threat to businesses because the working environment has changed so dramatically. It is now a highly interactive and collaborative environment where a variety of platforms is used for sharing ideas and information. The way data is stored, accessed and used has changed. Is yours stored in a manner that confidentiality is breached? At Mitiget will help you profile your data using best practices.

As data proliferates across the digital enterprise, confidential and personal data is at risk from ever-smarter cyber criminals, states and competitors. While malicious outsiders are still rife and using sophisticated methods to try and target businesses, a large proportion of data breaches occur because of human error. According to IBM, this is the cause of 95 per cent of security incidents.

The way data is stored, accessed and used has changed. From SharePoint to smartphones, platforms are diverse and extensive. More and more companies are also embracing a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy, meaning devices are used for both personal and business use. This shift presents many benefits, but one major drawback is that it leaves companies exposed. IT security departments lack overall control because data is often being handled independently.

Businesses can fall victim to accidental loss because employees aren’t trained in the secure handling of data. Additionally, devices can easily be lost or stolen; and what’s more, some of the apps being used will not be designed for corporate use. The potential problems are clear. This is where data classification services have become vital for all businesses and relevant tools prove invaluable.

Through labelling data based on sensitivity, employees gain an increased understanding of data confidentiality, and will think twice whenever handling sensitive data or sending private files. Data classification provides the framework for a successful security policy to be implemented – a policy that includes all employees. This is the only way to deal with the changing threat landscape.
