Why Chief Information Security Officers Trust Alex for Data Privacy
Data security is one of the most important aspects of any business today. But as Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) are quick to point out, protecting data involves more than just your own systems. In fact, most organizations have a significant amount of data stored in the cloud. This poses a huge challenge for CISOs because they’re not able to control how this data is secured – they can only trust that third parties are doing it properly. Unfortunately, as we’ve seen repeatedly with big breaches at notable companies, you can’t always trust third parties to protect your data properly. And even if those third parties were doing everything right, it wouldn’t matter if someone gets access to your system via another route – like phishing or malware affecting – and steals sensitive information.
Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) are responsible for keeping all of an organization’s data safe and secure.
As the chief information security officer (CISO), you are responsible for keeping all of an organization’s data safe and secure. You also oversee the IT infrastructure, which means you’re in charge of setting up firewalls, filtering out harmful content and traffic, monitoring network activity on a daily basis—there’s a lot to do!
If your company has employees who work remotely or travel frequently, you’ll need to ensure that their devices are protected as well. This may require implementing remote access solutions that allow users to work from anywhere without compromising security.
Your role is also one of damage control—you must guard against attacks on your organization’s reputation by protecting against data breaches that could affect its public image or lead consumers away from using its products or services in the future.
CISOs are focused on securing their organization’s data, but many times that data isn’t even in their possession.
CISOs are responsible for securing all data. Data could be stored on the organization’s servers and laptops, but it might also be located in the cloud, in other locations or countries, and even with other organizations—and this is where things get tricky.
CISOs have limited control over their company’s cloud provider or third-party service providers (TPPs). If they don’t trust their TPPs, they’re not going to allow them access to sensitive information or systems. But if your employees can’t share files securely because you don’t trust your TPPs, then it may not matter how much data protection you have in place; if the data isn’t secure when it leaves your network and lands at someone else’s hands (which could be halfway across the world), then there’s no way you can guarantee that it will remain private once it gets there either.
To deal with this problem, CISOs must devise a strategy for unifying the management of all enterprise data so that the location and nature of sensitive data is always visible and access and usage controls can be centrally.
Protecting your data is important but ensuring that it’s protected where it really needs to be is even more important.
Data privacy is a growing concern for many businesses, and it’s important to ensure that you’re protecting your data where it needs to be protected. While the importance of protecting your data is obvious, ensuring that it’s protected where it needs to be is even more important.
