January 29, 2016 | DevOps | joanna mastrocola
Our CEO, Elizabeth Lawler, had the opportunity to write a piece for DataInformed. In the post, Elizabeth discusses the true impact of data breaches and their seemingly never ending repercussions. As data breaches are costly, and diminish a company’s reputation, taking preventative measures to mitigate risk seems like the best strategy.
In the piece, Elizabeth outlines 5 necessary steps for creating a scalable data security plan. These 5 initiatives are aimed at making the enterprise more secure without compromising speed an innovation. Security should be a crossdepartmental concern. By re-naming security as a company-wide item, and having open and honest conversations about the security agenda, you will be closer to meeting your compliance goals.
Elizabeth also discusses how important it is to understand that security is an interative process. Things are never perfect the first time, you must turn your efforts into a process, understanding what works and what doesn’t , making the plan better every single time.
Success metrics, RBAC, and audit are also discussed, Elizabeth outlining the way these things can help create a cohesive and extendable security plan that all internal stakeholders will get behind and implement.
Take a look at all of Elizabeth’s security advice here, and, as always, don’t forget to let us know what you think.
