Data loss prevention at storage level
At The CTO Forum, Vishal Dhupar of Symantec discusses strategies for securing data at rest. One of the key points is that data throughout the organization should be classified based on risk and protected accordingly. Things to consider include regulations, industry standards, business risk, and intellectual property protection requirements.
Regulatory compliance requirements and the threat of having to publicly disclose data breaches have a growing number of IT executives taking a serious look at their security strategies even at the storage level. After all, data loss is big news and it can quickly undermine customer confidence, jeopardize company brand and reputation, and result in significant financial losses. Data privacy has become a critical issue across the world.
