Is Your File Data At Risk?

By: Absolute Team | 12/2/2010

Imperva released a whitepaper alerting you to the 'five signs your file data is at risk.' File data accounts for 80% of business data, with a 60% growth rate; insider threats and regulatory compliance are big drivers for the need to protect this data.

So, is your data at risk? Here are five questions you can ask as you work through your data policy planning...

  1. Who owns your file data?
  2. Who is actually using your files?
  3. Who has the potential to access your files?
  4. Whose access rights should be revoked?
  5. How do you know when access rights or activity violate corporate policy?

If you have gaps in addressing these questions in a timely manner, you may want to put in new technologies to help you out.
