How to protect your company and customer data

Protecting company and customer data has become a real challenge. Not only because of the need to comply with Brazilian GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), but above all because data itself is highly vulnerable. Data security breaches can be both intentional, such as hacker attacks, and accidental, the result of human error, for example, which multiplies the risks.

Corporate data has become very valuable and is constantly targeted by hackers as it is used to unravel business models and collect information about customers and partners, among other things. In possession of this information, cybercriminals are able to commit numerous crimes.

If your company stores data like this on its servers, you must have proper protection mechanisms in place. Here are some tips.

1) Data backup

Your company needs to protect itself against all system failures, so it is imperative to create backup routines. This can be through physical media, for example, but also through a private cloud service.

Data backup must also be protected against attacks from malware or intrusions. Physical backups should therefore be stored offline, in a secure location away from the company’s servers.  Make sure that all important data is part of the backup routine. It is also important that recovery tests are regularly performed.

2) Data access control

Most software used in a professional context allows you to manage data access on an individual basis, so that employees can only see certain information. You can also restrict the right to delete and export data. Thus, you can protect your company’s data from tampering, information theft, or intentional destruction.

3) The use of encryption

Encrypting data makes it unreadable without a decryption key. This process enables the secure exchange of data between users (by e-mail, for example), but can also be applied to attachments, databases, and payment information.

Some tools and software store the data encrypted, so that the data is only accessible by using the software itself and a password.

It is also important that the company adopts a disk encryption solution on its devices, especially portable ones, as a way to prevent improper access to the data in case the devices are lost or stolen.

4) Have a plan in case of a data breach

No company would like to go through this, but it is recommended to have a security incident procedure so that you know exactly what to do in case of a data breach. This procedure must also include templates for immediate notification of your customers, suppliers, and authorities.

In addition to these tips, it is essential to comply with the guidelines of the GDPR, which was created to establish a strict framework for the treatment of personal data and sensitive personal data throughout the national territory.
