Understanding Data-Centric Security
Not too long ago, a firewall, antivirus, VPN and good Web/email filtering was considered a solid security architecture. The idea was to build a few layers of defense, creating a security perimeter around your corporate network. The problem is, it has never worked. Cybercriminals are one step ahead. That’s not to say that technology doesn’t play a part in IT security — it absolutely does. But before you even think about technology, you need to determine who will be responsible for security, and develop and communicate your strategy. Data-Centric security is more important now than ever.
