The most important thing you can identify is re-think the way you look at data and security. You must understand what is really at risk and then protect it. Below are five key principles that you must remember when it comes to protecting your data:
Fit your PC with “Lock” to protect your privacy now!
1. ALL data has value.
No matter how harmless or insignificant a bit of information may seem, it can probably be used by someone and they are willing to pay for it.
3. You must assume all data sent in the clear can be easily collected, mined replicated and stored.
Over time, mass amounts of data can be collected and sifted through to gain a pretty good view of an organization.
4. Once stolen, data can be sold and used repeatedly by multiple people or groups.
Just because your data is stolen once, doesn’t mean it will only be used once.
5. Security measures should focus on protecting “the thing of value” rather than preventing “events”.
You can’t predict how, when or where an event will take place. This type of defense is always reactionary. Sometimes the event is undetected.
