The Information Security Forum, widely considered to be among the world's leading information security and risk management bodies, recently said the advent of big data has introduced a number of document security concerns. Regardless of the potential benefits the technologies provide, decision-makers need to address vulnerabilities as soon as possible or risk exposing confidential information, according to a FierceMobileIT report.
"Organizations must prepare for the unpredictable so they have the resilience to withstand unforeseen, high impact events," said Steve Durbin, global vice president of the ISF, according to the news source.
Durbin said companies should think about the evolving risk landscape in terms of how threats can affect their most valuable resources and daily operations. In doing so, decision-makers can develop robust document protection strategies that will ensure the safety of confidential data.
As big data continues to disrupt the private sector, general security and business continuity initiatives need to take the projects into account. If decision-makers do not acknowledge the evolving threat environment, they risk exposing mission-critical resources and damaging their reputation.
