Take Data Protection to Another Level with These Six Programs: Cybersecurity Best Practices

Earlier this week, Cimplifi continued its “between a rock and a hard place” series with this post to show you how to take data protection to another level with these six programs!

Their post (Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Six Programs to Take Data Protection to Another Level, available here) discusses how to take data protection to another level with six programs which include disciplines beyond cybersecurity. Here’s one of those six programs:

Identify and Classify Sensitive Data


You can spend a lot to implement various mechanisms to protect your organization’s data, but it can be expensive to protect all your data across the entire organization. And you can still fail to protect the data that’s most important in your organization.

All data is not the same and shouldn’t be treated the same. If you’re not protecting the data that is most sensitive to your organization and your clients, your data protection program is a failure. That’s why it’s important to identify and classify sensitive data within your organization to “right-size” your data protection program.

Data analytics can help to identify sensitive data, such as PII and information about key entities. It can also help identify Redundant, Obsolete and Trivial (ROT) data that your organization can eliminate to make it easier to identify the important sensitive data you need to protect most.

So, what are the other five programs to take data protection to another level? Find out that and more here! It’s just one more click! And please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
