What is Data Protection and its Benefits for Your Business

Data protection has become a critical obligation for companies to uphold, ensuring safety the customer data and the smooth operation of business. With the escalating instances of data theft and mining, data protection has emerged as a fundamental necessity.  

According to Surfshark’s findings, data theft surged from 81 million accounts to 435 million. On average, a staggering 627 accounts were compromised per minute in the last quarter of 2023. This figure escalated to 3,353 accounts every minute in the first quarter of this year. But what exactly is data protection? To what extent is it a company’s responsibility to safeguard its data, and how does this impact the business budget? Find the comprehensive explanation below 

What is Data Protection?

Quoting Tech Target, data protection entails safeguarding vital information from potential damage, interference, or loss. As the volume and complexity of data creation and storage surge at an unprecedented rate, the necessity for data protection intensifies. Hence, it’s crucial for companies and government agencies to devise data protection strategies, ensuring data availability and swift recovery post-damage or loss. Additionally, amidst the Working from Anywhere (WFA) trend, preserving data privacy becomes paramount. With mMillions of employees working remotely, companies need to adopt remote data protection strategies, safeguarding data across data centers, home laptops, or any location. Fundamentally, data protection encompasses a company’s capacity to safeguard, provide, and manage data under any circumstances, including data backup for business continuity and Disaster Recovery (DR) plans.  

Example of Implementing Data Protection

Example of Implementing Data Protection

In this digital era, implementing data protection is imperative to shield personal and sensitive information from misuse or unauthorized access. Here are several examples of implementing data protection: 

Data Encryption

Encrypting stored or transmitted data is an important step to protect sensitive information. By using strong encryption algorithms, data can be converted into a format that cannot be read without the proper encryption key. 

Privacy Policy

Companies should have a clear privacy policy that explains what type of data is collected, how it is used, with whom it may be shared, and what steps it takes to protect that data. 

Limited Access

Provide data access only to individuals or entities who need the information to carry out their duties. This can be achieved through a strong authentication system and setting appropriate access rights. 

Activity Monitoring

Implement monitoring systems to detect suspicious or unauthorized activity that could threaten data security. This can include access log monitoring, threat detection, and early warning systems. 

Education and Training

Conduct regular training for employees on best practices in maintaining data security and how to identify potential security threats.

Not only because data continues to increase, the adoption of new technology also requires companies to improve management and data protection.
