Organizations incorporate many practices in their security infrastructure to prevent data leak. Since data leaks and exploitation is the loss of data, the best practices to prevent them would be to secure data itself throughout its entire lifecycle.

Sonit Jain, CEO of GajShield Infotech shares some of the possible ways and best practices of data security are:

Filtering Threats
Filtering threat means to monitor data as it travels through various on-premise and cloud applications to detect any possible threat. It ensures that all data sent to and received from different applications are free from malware. This will help your cybersecurity team to prevent the entry of any possible malware into the enterprise network.

Context-Based Data Leak Prevention
Integrating Context-Based Data Leak Prevention solution on the network firewall ensures the prevention of critical data leaks, be it accidentally or intentionally. It allows businesses to define data leak prevention policies. They can include both content and context in their policies to restrict any information containing those restrictive parameters from leaving the office network. For instance, if organizations include the keyword “customer” in their policy, then data leak prevention solution will restrict any outgoing mail and fax containing it. It can prevent data leak on various platforms such as E-Mail, SaaS/Web Applications, web uploads, IM chats, Social Media, etc.

Securing Roaming Users
Most of today’s businesses have adopted a work from home setup during this testing times of COVID-19 outbreak. Being digital, at least partly, if not entirely has helped us all with the convenience of working remotely and maintaining business operations running. While remote working does bring ease of operations but attracts various threats as employees operate on various applications. These applications enable employees to access enterprise information from around the globe through their personal devices and networks increasing the chances of Data Leak. Securing these roaming users enables companies to monitor data transactions made via personal devices and public networks.

The Enterprise Cloud Solution routes all the traffic of the roaming/remote users through the HO firewall, bringing them under the Firewall’s Data Security Policies. For instance, if an employee connects to enterprise applications through a public network, then all the network activities would be routed through the office firewall to ensure data security.
