Here’s The Reason Data Security Should Be a Top Business Priority

The role of data security cannot be ignored in the digital age. Today, data is a valuable asset for individuals and businesses, containing personal, financial, and strategic information. Strong data security not only protects privacy, but also prevents financial loss, identity theft, and reputational damage.  

In addition, the importance of data security is driven not only by the growth of cyber threats, but also by increasingly stringent data privacy regulations. As a result, organizations must invest sufficient resources to ensure that their data is secure and meets applicable regulatory standards.   

In this article, Virtus will explore why data security is so important in the digital world, especially for organizations or businesses that store a lot of sensitive data. Read the explanation below. 

What is Data Security?

Data security is the practices and measures used to protect data from unauthorized or unauthorized access, use, modification, or disclosure. The key purpose of data security is to ensure that sensitive or valuable data remains secure and does not fall into the wrong hands.   

When properly implemented, data security not only protects business information assets from cybercriminal activity, but also from internal threats and human error, which are still the leading causes of data breaches today. 

Data security involves various strategies, technologies, and policies to reduce the risks associated with data loss or misuse. Ideally, the tools used will have implemented protection systems such as encryption, data masking, and modification of sensitive files, as well as automated reporting for regulatory compliance. 

Why is Data Security Important for Businesses in the Digital Age?

It is undeniable that in the digital age, businesses are vulnerable to various cyber threats such as hacking, malware, and phishing. Data security is the first line of defense against these attacks. Data loss or leakage of sensitive information can certainly damage a company's reputation, cause huge financial losses, and lead to loss of customer trust.  

On the other hand, cyber threats are no longer a figment of our imagination. Many countries have enacted strict data protection regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe, the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA), and Personal Data Protection Law (PDP Law). Companies that fail to comply with these regulations can face significant fines.  

 5 Ways to Keep Data Secure from Cyber Threats

Keeping your data secure and protected is a top priority in the ever-evolving digital age. Here are five ways to do it.  

  • Monitor data activity and accelerate audit reporting  

  • Encrypt sensitive data to prevent unauthorized access  

  • Integrate discovery and classification of structured and unstructured data  

  • Identify vulnerabilities in your data environment to address potential security risks  

  • Centralize and simplify encryption key management to protect encrypted data  

In addition, remember that data breaches can also be caused by distributed data storage, such as in the cloud, SaaS applications, or on endpoints. This method of storage makes it easier for hackers to find security holes to access sensitive data spread across multiple data centers and data storage in the cloud. 

To overcome this, organizations need a comprehensive data security solution that can be deployed on-premises or in the hybrid cloud. By doing so, organizations can gain greater visibility and insight to combat cyber threats, fully control access in real time, and meet regulatory compliance requirements.  

To make it easier for you to maintain data security, the PowerProtect Cyber Recovery solution from Dell Technologies may be the right choice. This solution helps you protect your business data and respond more effectively to cyber threats.
