This paper examines how organizations can reduce the costs and extent of cybersecurity breaches by becoming “good shepherds” of their data. Using information governance tools to provide transparency into unstructured data allows you to understand where your organization stores high-value and high-risk information and minimize the risk this data will be exposed. You can achieve this through:
- Defensibly deleting data that has no business value
- Locating high-value documents and intellectual property, and migrating them to repositories with encryption, access controls and retention rules
- Protecting high-risk private and financial data in the same way and ensuring it does not leak from controlled repositories
- Applying policies and conducting regular audits to ensure only authorized staff members have access to important data.
