In the digital age and as we move closer to a paperless society, the way that an organisation manages and protects its’ information is inherently linked to the success and longevity of a business. Increasingly, the sum of knowledge for an organisation is stored digitally; from strategic plans, to financials, customer information, employee data, transactional history, innovations, ideas and IP. All this information needs to be managed and protected. Effective governance and, in some cases regulatory requirements, mean that an organisation must ensure confidential and sensitive information is secure, preserved and the risk of data leakage is minimised.
SNP’s GM of Services Craig Millar spoke at this week’s Security Exhibition & Conference, on ‘Managing risk and delivering security in the digital age’.
In his presentation, Craig highlighted the potential risks that organisations may face in relation to data and information security and identified some of the top information security risk hotspots. Craig’s presentation was well received by the audience, as he talked through several case studies demonstrating the possible ramifications associated with confidential data intentionally or unintentionally leaving an organisation and entering the public domain.
To manage and mitigate risk, an effective and holistic information risk management strategy is essential and must be intertwined with every aspect of day to day business activities – from the creation of information and data, to its storage, accessibility, sharing, archiving, retention and final destruction. SNP has a range of strategies and solutions that can be used to ensure confidential and sensitive information is secure, preserved and the risk of data leakage minimised.
