Company data targeted by attackers
Data is among the most important resources of a company. Its loss can cause considerable financial damage as well as a loss of reputation and trust. Therefore, special attention is paid to its protection. The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) emphasises the dangers that data is exposed to under basic IT protection:
- Theft or loss of devices and mobile data media,
- Misuse of access rights,
- Manipulation of information,
- Disclosure of sensitive information.
The legal requirements are high: the GDPR in the European Union, for example, specifies the organisational and technical measures to be taken to ensure an appropriate level of protection of personal data during processing. National IT protection guidelines concretise these by recommending the encryption of notebooks or external storage media.
This is where the Zero Trust security approach comes into play: Modern IT security concepts dictate that no user, device, access or application is trustworthy from the outset. All information should be encrypted and protected from unauthorised access. Be on the safe side with DriveLock data encryption.
