“What is broken in the security industry?” CSO Online recently asked data security experts at Black Hat USA 2015.
Rather than the processes or products being the problem, Todd Feinman, CEO of Identity Finder had another take on it; truly understanding your data. Given the unprecedented amount of data that organizations produce and store, their biggest challenge is understanding their data and what’s inside of it. “Not all data needs to be protected equally,” says Todd Feinman. When you have so much data, you tend to forget what the most sensitive information is and where it is located, which makes it even harder to protect.
When looking at a security program you have to look at discovering, classifying, monitoring and protecting data throughout its lifecycle—from creation to use to storage. Unfortunately, no single system will provide you with the ability to do everything. Many systems have to operate together so you know exactly where to focus and can ensure that your most important and sensitive data is protected.
