And how to ensure your assets are truly secure

In the current business landscape, protecting your digital assets is a key priority. Through information security technology, businesses can effectively protect their digital and even analog information and keep their operations up and running.

The scope of information security (InfoSec) is rather large and can be quite confusing for many business owners. Cornerstone Data Systems, Inc. provides all the information you need to know on how to effectively leverage InfoSec technology.

InfoSec vs. Cybersecurity

Although they may be used interchangeably, information security and cybersecurity deal with different objectives of a company’s security needs. InfoSec covers a much larger area of protection that can relate to everything from mobile computing to social media and even infrastructure security. Cybersecurity, on the other hand, deals with strengthening the protection of business data and how it is managed across the company.

Types of InfoSec Technologies

InfoSec technologies can be offered in many different areas of a business:

  • Application security
  • Cloud security
  • Infrastructure security
  • Information encryption
  • Threat response
  • Disaster recovery
  • Vulnerability management

Therefore, InfoSec technologies do not cover just one aspect of a business’s protection. Instead, it usually consists of a wider, comprehensive strategy designed to help a business stay on top of all its protection needs, and ensure the operations can be carried out even in case of a threat or disaster.

How to Leverage InfoSec Technology and Protect Your Business

Because of the areas that InfoSec covers, the technologies that aim to protect businesses are equally vast in their goals and capabilities. Some examples of information security technologies can include:

  • Firewalls
  • Data loss prevention
  • Intrusion detection and prevention
  • Event management systems
  • User behavior analytics
  • Cloud security management

One of the best ways to create a comprehensive information security strategy for your business, and therefore knowing which technologies your business could effectively benefit from, is to speak with an InfoSec provider.

Good InfoSec strategies need to meet certain criteria to be truly effective:

  • Personalized to the unique needs and characteristics of the business
  • Be easily implemented by either the internal staff of the company or a third-party support team
  • Be continuously monitored and improved based on the latest information

Smaller businesses, in particular, may struggle to meet the requirements of a strong InfoSec strategy, but if you are looking to improve your business security, the Cornerstone team is happy to help.
