The 5 Steps To Effective Data Protection

What’s the first step for ensuring your data is protected? Download our guide to find out

Every day your businesses are creating more and more data. Data gets saved, employees move on, data is forgotten and lost. Valuable information sits on your file servers and document stores, not protected and unrecoverable because no one knows where to find it.

Using data classification helps you regain control over your unstructured data. By involving your users in data classification, they will automatically become more data-aware, with a greater understanding of your policies and the value of your organization’s data.

This whitepaper will take you through the 5 steps to implementing effective data protection within your organization, and detail how data classification can also enhance previously implemented tools, such as data loss prevention tools (DLP), data discovery tools, data governance tools and more.

Topics covered in this whitepaper include:

  • How to identify your “Crown Jewels”, or your most valuable data.
  • The importance of data discovery tools in classification. 
  • Classifiying your data according to its level of sensitivity or value, using labels.
  • Using enterprise security and information management solutions to secure your data.
