Personal Computer

Like it or not, employees are likely to work on and store work-related documents on a personal computer. This naïve behavior can cause considerable damage to an organization if the device is lost or stolen. As well, if the employee leaves the company, the sensitive intellectual property and data can easily be shared with the next employer or other unauthorized recipients.

How do you control the use of personal computers for work related activities? Persistent digital rights management should be applied to all sensitive documents. The newer solutions enable the organization to not only control who and what a person can do with a file, they can also control which IP address or device can be used to access and work on the file. That puts the organization in complete control of their information.

With an increase in cyber attacks targeting financial data, health care records, HR files, intellectual property and other forms of highly sensitive data, enterprises must evaluate not only what data is at risk, but where data is at risk. The threat perimeter has expanded well beyond the walls of most organizations as more file sharing, mobile devices and cloud technologies are deployed by IT departments.

Knowing where data resides is the first step in securing the enterprises' new perimeter. However, the battle isn't won until security controls are in place, regardless of a file's location.

In this slideshow, Seclore breaks down the top five areas exposing your sensitive data to risk, and provides tips for minimizing security vulnerabilities.
