Data can be the new gold or it can be toxic waste. It all depends on how you treat it. With the number of companies being hit by Ransomware attacks, the number of regulations that need to be adhered to, and the amount of data remaining un-owned increasing dramatically, serious action needs to be taken to protect yourself against these insecurities. Protecting your data is the last line of defense for your company’s continuity and reputation.
Create a golden copy of your data in a bunker or the cloud to protect it against Ransomware and malicious or accidental deletes.
Really know who owns the data and take action to transfer ownership or remove it when an employee leaves the company.
Identify risky data, such as images and videos, and take action to eliminate it before it becomes a social or legal issue.
Cleanup ROT Data
Cleanup redundant, obsolete, and outdated data that is taking up valuable space, causing risk, and providing little value.
