Keeping Source Code Safe with Data Loss Prevention

November 9, 2018 Author: Data Loss Prevention 0 Comments

When developing new software and algorithms, companies’ number one concern is that they do the job they are meant to do and function efficiently. Cybersecurity features, when implemented, are meant to ensure the protection of users’ data and guard against malicious process hijacking attacks. Source code itself is often left out of these security considerations and its importance as proprietary confidential information is overlooked.

Sensitive data is frequently viewed as referring to individuals’ data that is protected in many cases by law and whose leakage can cause both financial liability and a loss of customer trust.  When it comes to source code, inevitably, there are competitors that might develop similar products, but there is a marked difference between them having to do the ground work themselves and simply following a company’s available code as their blueprint.…

A Slicker, Easier Way to Use EasyLock

October 11, 2018 Author: Encryption 0 Comments

Data has never been more vulnerable than it is today. Companies struggle to keep their data secure as relentless waves of attacks strike at the core of some of the world’s most established brands and trusted online services. Added pressure comes from the adoption of data protection regulations across the globe and the need for every data collector to comply with them.

Data on the move is particularly susceptible to data loss as it is open not only to physical theft, but also human error: portable devices are often forgotten, lost or left open to third party tampering. With today’s work force becoming ever more dynamic, organizations search for solutions that will continue to allow their employees to retain their mobility while also protecting the data they carry with them.

EasyLock Enforced Encryption was developed to address this specific vulnerability in data protection by enabling

Australia’s Answer to the GDPR: The Notifiable Data Breaches Scheme

August 31, 2018 Author: Compliance 0 Comments

Since its adoption the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has created a domino effect around the world, with many countries moving forward with proposals for new data protection regulations or updates to existing ones. From Brazil’s Data Protection Bill of Law to China’s Internet Security Law, it seems data protection legislation is on every country’s agenda.

Australia is no different. In fact, it was one of the countries to get a head start in aligning its 1988 Privacy Act to some of the new concepts and requirements introduced by the GDPR. The Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017 was adopted in November 2017 and actually came into force before the GDPR, on 22 February 2018.

As its name suggests, the Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme introduced mandatory data breach notifications into Australia’s Privacy Act 1988. It puts organizations…

What is Data Classification?

Much like its name implies, data classification is the process of organizing data into appropriate categories for a more efficient use and protection of data across company networks.

In the context of information security, data is tagged based on its level of sensitivity, making it easier to find, track and safeguard …
