The Ultimate Data Security Checklist

If you have been keeping up to date on the conversation about cyber security, you probably know the different ways of keeping your computer and valuable data safe. Here is the ultimate data security checklist to use when trying to keep your information safe.

One of the first things you should do is to develop a clear data security strategy that has concrete requirements. This may include the creation of a data comprehensive data governance plan. This plan should outline the policies and standards about data security at an organizational level. An Acceptable Use Policy should also be created. This policy outlines the appropriate and inappropriate use of the internet for employees. Regular checks and trainings should be included in this policy. Physical security is another important aspect of data security. For example, make sure that all server rooms or other areas where data is stored and/or processed are kept locked. This is an easy way to increase your data security. If you have any applications on your computer, this is a potential weak area on the computer’s networks. In order to combat again this, it is possible to test applications for their data security vulnerabilities. When you know what areas you need to be on the lookout for, it can help you plan your next move regarding your personalized data security plan.

Access control is an area that might seem obvious but may companies could still benefit from stronger access control. On a basic level, this includes strong passwords but it also includes having multiple levels of user authentication plans as well as setting specific limits on the type of data that can be accessed. This can mean anything from locking access to data after a session timeout to limiting the amount of information various employees can access. These are good first steps to take when figuring out your data security plan.
