Information security continues to be an important topic even if there haven’t been any newsworthy breaches recently. That could be due to the nature of proper security, which involves continual effort and therefore top of mind. Annual penetration tests, monthly vulnerability scans, scheduled password resets and authentication of new devices are a few recommended policies to stay secure.
Security was much easier when the ability to share was more difficult and the potential for inadvertent release was much lower. Back when paper documents ruled the world, locked file cabinets or a managed file room with in/out tracking satisfied the requirements. With digital documents, your systems need to be hardened and so do your users. Data can leak through the back door or the front door.text
