Some Policies that can Help Avoiding Data Breach

In order to make data secure, Department of Defense banned the usage of USB flash drives a few years back. The department conducted a number of awareness programs regarding the security of USB flash drives, took quizzes from the employees. After so many precautions, still the Department of Defense suffered a number of breaches at regular intervals. So, in the end of the day, they had to ban the use of USB flash drives. The main reason of using USB drives at such a mass level is its portability. Employees like to take the important data with them so they can work from home if needed. Where, this portability gives the freedom to employees to work from home. The same portability allows the crooks to take sensitive data with them and hand it over to some competitor or other firm of the industry. The Department of Defense did not only ban USB drives to tackle the data breach problem, they also banned iPod, e-book readers, Smartphones, and all other such gadgets. The Department of Defense issued the approved portable storage devices that were to be used for the convenience of the employees. All unauthorized USB thumb drives were blocked, so no one could plug in personal drives. Plugging in the devices that are distributed in some kind of seminars and trade festivals can be injurious to the data. Employees were trained regarding data security. The employees were given tutorials and practical scenarios of how to act if a data breach occurs. The companies that fear data loss must follow the footsteps of the Department of Defense as they have taken some extremely effective measures to tackle data breach. Tight monitoring policy and security policies should be established. A large majority does not know that there has been a breach. Stiff check and balance allows to catch data breach sooner rather than later. Not every byte of data requires special security tools to be protected, only the sensitive information should be encrypted with all due care. Data before transferring anywhere should be encrypted properly. Active monitoring minimizes the threat of data theft, which is a big source data leakage. It should be monitored that only authorized portable data storing devices are plugged in the systems. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is proven to be a disaster for the companies regarding data security. Not even firm device control and security policies are capable enough to protect data breach; you should learn the techniques to retrieve your lost data. There is quite a high percentage of data lost through the lost and theft USB flash drives. Employees can lose the authorized portable drive that may contain some confidential records. In order to save that data from falling into the wrong hands, you may use security software that can Secure USB. Other than that, perform data recovery drills on a regular basis, and know your abilities of recovering your data. Keeping antivirus and other security tools do not help the cause much. Security software should be updated regularly. Policies should be straight and rigid, the more important thing that just making policies is to implement them. Data breach is one of the biggest losses of the business; it should be care with proper diligence. Companies may lose revenue, goodwill and clients in result of data breaches.
