Five Threats to Data Security and How to Protect against Them
This paper is not designed to re-tread these statistics or horror stories. The purpose of this paper is to examine five specific risks to data security, showing where and how confidential data may be vulnerable -- and how you can protect your business against these threats.
The specific risks are posed by:
--unencrypted data in vulnerable locations
--new types of application-level attacks
--mismanagement of private keys
--inadequate user authentication and authorization
--human administrative error
All of these risks have one thing in common: they can be greatly reduced, in some cases completely eliminated, through an Active Application Security product that effectively delivers a powerful combination of data encryption, key management and access management technologies, with no loss in networking performance.
