Ten common data security mistakes


Flask Data provides a one-stop cloud subscription for EDC, data management and statistics.

Five years ago in October 2004, I wrote a piece on the top ten mistakes companies make in their data security policy and implementation (see the full article  – 10 common data security mistakes).  I took a few minutes today to update the article in the course of  preparing for our next online data security workshop (register online).  Most of the material still feels pretty relevant today:

Wait until you have a major data loss event

Assume that permissions protect your data

Assume that there are no threats on authorized network channels

Assume that your firewall protects your data

Assume that data on servers inside your network are safe

Don’t give employees Internet access

Spend $50k and 5 months doing a data security risk assessment

Avoid answering “Who owns data loss prevention”?

Buy according to what you read in the trade press

Decide by Powerpoint
