Security is a top-of-mind concern for CIOs and data center managers. In environments where regulatory requirements play a role, it is critical to ensure that organizational data is safe and secure at every access point. Awareness isn’t enough, though. Organizations must be able to gauge their security preparedness.  That’s why Logicalis, an international provider of integrated information and communications technology (ICT) solutions and services, has developed a checklist of seven key things to look for in a secure IT environment.

“The cornerstone when securing an IT environment is to classify the data that runs through that environment,” explains Von Williams, director of information security, audits and compliance for Logicalis.  “You have to know whether your data is private, confidential or public before you can assign security protocols and policies that will safeguard that data to the extent required for each level of classification.”

According to Logicalis, there are seven key ways to know if an IT environment is operating under a “best practices” approach to data security.  Using this checklist as a guide is a good start, but Williams warns that IT security is not a static process and controls must be employed to continually assess and reassess the companywide policies and strategies that keep security in check.
