To mark Data Privacy Day, the Arete Incident Response team discusses the top data risks every organisation should be aware of. These 3 top data risks include data loss, inadequate knowledge of data loss and ransomware attacks.
Loss of Data
A data-centric strategy is necessary to keep pace with innovation, data accessibility, and compliance monitoring, along with data loss protection. In order to protect and maintain the privacy of a business’s most valuable resource, data loss prevention (DLP) is essential. By using this method, data owners and security teams can safely recommend data loss prevention (DLP) within their organisation.
Inadequate knowledge of Data Loss
The biggest threat to the cloud security of a business may be data leaks. A growing number of firms are discovering that their cloud computing capabilities are vulnerable to reputational and financial penalties arising from the regulatory and legal fallout that follows data breaches.
Ransomware attacks are among the few cyber threats that receive as much public attention and general concern. Small-to-midsize businesses (SMBs), as well as local governments, are targets of these more common and expensive online cash grabs, which are driving up the number of these cyber threats.
Additionally, many ransomware threats occur at the user level because phishing techniques and other harmful communications enable these major cyber threats.
Cyber risks are also shifting as businesses move toward a digital strategy while balancing a hybrid work structure and pushing every aspect of their operations to the cloud.
As per recent reports, the cyber threats are growing, spilling into the mainstream 2023 will see leading organisations investing heavily in updating or establishing more robust cybersecurity policies and procedures, monitoring attack surfaces, and enabling security automation.
Team up with an incident response, digital forensics, and data restoration teams to proactively identify and eliminate threats in networks, reduce the attack surface, close security breaches, and recover critical data.
