  • Are there data handling standards preventing this?
  • Do you have the technology in place to stop this breech?

A hacker penetrates a database housing critical IP.

  • Do you have procedures in place to react effectively?
  • Will your security infrastructure alert you of this?

A financial contractor leaves the company.

  • Are there procedures for revoking his access?
  • Do you have technology to ensure no data leaves with him?

Where Does Your Organization Fit?

The Data Security Quandrant, explained.

Technology Driven: We do not know exactly where all our data is, and our organization does not have written policies governing data access, but we're comfortable the technology we've put in place will help protect it from threats.

Prepared: We have security standards and procedures and best of breed technologies to support them. But we know we must continuously evaluate risk and make smart decisions to keep pace with business transformation and emerging threats.

Exposed: Change comes so quickly and new threats to data appear all the time - we do not believe technology or policy can keep up.

Documented: Our data governance policies are documented and our users have been informed about how to appropriately handle data. We have not invested in technology to ensure these policies are followed.
