Data security – the importance of information security

Data security refers to the process of data protection against unauthorized access to it and its manipulation, e.g. by ransomware attacks. Data equates to the brand value of a company, intellectual capital or sensitive customer information. Cyber attacks of recent years have shown that unauthorized access to data leads to operational failures, damage to the company's image and financial setbacks. However, efforts to increase security measures are no longer just a question of data protection, it also includes the protection of a company's infrastructure. The distinction between data-at-rest and data-in-motion is important.

The following areas belong to data protection:

  • Data encryption
  • Data masking
  • Data deletion
  • Data backup

However, further practice should go beyond these methods. This involves security strategies that include strict processes such as password policies, identity and access management (IAM) and data loss prevention

Your challenges

Especially in the context of data protection regulations such as GDPR, data security has the greatest relevance and importance for you and your organization. Data breaches are punishable by heavy fines, making it increasingly important to protect oneself as far as possible from security threats. The first is the protection of data-in-motion, i.e. the data stream that moves through a network, be it WAN or LAN. In the past, CIOs paid more attention to data-in-motion when it came to appropriate security measures. However, it is also important to protect data-at-rest, i.e. the data that is on-premises in your storage systems, but also in external storage systems, e.g. in the cloud off-premises.
