Best Practices in Data Protection Study Released
November 4, 2011, 7:09 pm

 Sponsored by McAfee, the Best Practices in Data Protection survey is our latest effort to find out what separates the best organizations from the rest. We believe this study is important because it provides insights on how organizations can be more successful when investing in and building a data protection program. The study's findings reveal five success factors in a data protection program:

  1. A formal data protection strategy for the organization and metrics to determine if the strategy is effective.
  2. Key metrics from a management console and observation and regular testing of data protection solutions.
  3. Data protection technology features that focus on privileged users, restriction of access and outbound communications are considered critical
  4. Centralized management of the data protection program with such features as actionable information, policy administration, reporting, automatic securing of endpoints and monitoring.
  5. Automated policies for detection and prevention of end-user misuse of information assets.
