hackerHow many businesses have a security alarm at their office?  Why?  How many of those same businesses have a security alarm on the data that keeps them in business?  Do you store Personal Identifiable Information (PII)?  What is PII?  PII as defined by US General Service Administration "The term “PII,” as defined in OMB Memorandum M-07-1616 refers to information that can be used to distinguish or trace an individual’s identity, either alone or when combined with other personal or identifying information that is linked or linkable to a specific individual."

 

Consider the data you have; what is it?  Is it your data?  Is it protected?  Lets look at these questions:

 

  • What kind of Data do you have?  Do you collect customer's name, address, telephone numbers, birth dates, account information?  Can this data be used as a financial gain if placed in the wrong hands?  If so, you MUST protect it!  Data that can be used to personally identify an individual is required by law to be protected.
  • Is this data your data?  Yes, you collected this data; but is it really your data?  No, it is the person the data is about; your customer.  you are the keeper of this data and you need to protect this data against criminals.
  • Is the data protected?  IS the data encrypted and stored in a secured environment that is only accessed by employees that are authorized?  Is this data backed up and can be recovered in the event of a disaster?

 

How do many of these hacks occur and how to mitigate data loss at your business?  Many of these breaches were a result of a malware running on a desktop, and mobile devices.  Many malware uses vulnerabilities within the operation system and are undetected unless monitored.  

How often is your operating system upgraded?  Do you have all of the most recent patches installed to protect your applications?  Recently Flash has been updating vulnerabilities nearly every month.  Microsoft pushes out updates every Tuesday.  Do you have a Team that patches your desktops and servers?

 

Malware and Viruses are not the same!  Your virus scanner may not be able to scan for malware.  Do you have a malware detector running on your work desktops and any devices connected to your work infrastructure?  How often does it run and what do you do if it finds something?
