Protect Your Data By Identifying Sensitive Information, Restricting Its Access, and Encrypting It.
Business theft often involves the theft of data rather than physical assets. Identify sensitive information and the computers on which it’s stored. Sensitive information includes data that pertains to an individual, such as credit card data, as well as information that applies to an entire organization, such as proprietary data. Minimize the number of computers that store sensitive data as well as the number of people with access to those computers. Store sensitive data in an encrypted format, especially when using portable storage media.
