Security intelligence, or information regarding the evolving risk landscape, is a critical part of any document protection strategy, as decision-makers need to understand how resources are being accessed and used to safeguard them. The concept of security intelligence is rapidly changing, however, and executives need to develop unique plans to ensure confidential solutions are protected.
A report by Dark Reading said planning ahead is the most important part of establishing an effective security intelligence strategy. Information regarding evolving digital threats, in particular, will give decision-makers unique insight into virtual environments and how varying document security solutions will address vulnerabilities.
Both short- and long-term threats should be addressed in the planning phase, as this is the only way to guarantee longevity in today's highly complicated digital landscape, Dark Reading said. By placing an emphasis on enduring risks, executives will be able to develop more consistent security initiatives.
Companies of all sizes should also consider deploying document rights management solutions that limit unauthorized access to sensitive resources. This will prevent both unverified insiders and outsiders from viewing confidential records.
