Ensuring that the correct access rights to company sensitive data are provided only to the relevant individuals is the basis for information governance. Although IT systems will provide the necessary controls to implement information governance, it is in essence a business issue not a technology issue. Businesses need to understand what their most critical information assets are, from financial data and personal records, through to intellectual property and supplier contracts and protect them accordingly.
Companies are becoming increasingly aware that shortfalls in its information governance provision can leave them vulnerable to a cyber breach or cyber attack. One of the major forms of cyber crime comes from the insider threat, an employee who has become disgruntled or disillusioned with their employer and wishes to cause them harm, a poor approach to information governance can allow such a threat to be potentially devastating.
By bridging the gap between the defined roles and responsibilities of staff and the implementation of these responsibilities for access with the existing IT systems, CCL can provide an Information Governance Review to your business. We can determine if the current provision is fit for purpose and if it has the necessary robustness to prevent critical data loss. This review will detail where improvements can be made in order to secure your businesses critical information assets and make the necessary technical and process recommendations on how this can be achieved.
