WHAT ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES AS A SECURITY/RISK LEADER?

The recent ‘Gartner Market Guide for Data-Centric Audit and Protection’ outlined the key responsibilities of a security/risk leader.

Whether your organisation is using Sharepoint, Office 365, Microsoft Teams or File Share here is a brief summary of the key responsibilities when it comes to data governance:

• Establish organisation-wide data security governance in cooperation with key business stakeholders to develop appropriate data security policies that balance business objectives.
• Identify the data security controls required to mitigate the risks and threats to each sensitive data type, and then coordinate with each silo’s management team and data owners to apply them consistently across all silos and applications.
• Ensure that data security policies take account of how data flows and is transposed by users, business processes, applications or big data analytics. Here’s an overview of how Torsion can help you comply with data governance.
• Implement a Data-centric audit and protection (DCAP) strategy, and “shortlist” products that orchestrate data security controls consistently across all silos that store the sensitive data.

In our next post we will talk more about Data-centric audit and protection (DCAP) and how it can be implemented successfully to ensure secure data governance.
