IT Security Lifecycle
In today’s world of global information sharing and accessibility, the risk of IT data breach is higher than ever. Hackers, spammers and facilitators of corporate espionage are more sophisticated and knowledgeable than ever. The only way to protect valuable, sensitive data is through the creation, implementation and constant monitoring of an effective data security program by those who understand the threats posed to such information systems best.
IT Security Lifecycle: Planning
The first step in the protection of crucial sensitive data is effective planning. By assessing the data to be protected, the threats to breach of that data and the security systems which may or may not already be in place, an experienced third party data protection firm on the cutting edge of information technology and encryption protocols can plan and develop an effective policy for keeping that data secure and providing piece of mind to those clients and/or internal personnel most vulnerable in the event of a data breach.
In summary, In the planning phase of the IT Security Lifecycle you should
- Assess the data that needs to be protected
- The breach threats associated with that data
- Identify the security systems that need to be put in place
