10 Tips for Taking Back Control of Your Data

In an increasingly mobile world, more mobile data is being housed in the cloud, which has resulted in some serious security breaches. In 2014, for example, breaches regarding under-clothed celebrities dominated headlines. This year, organizations will need to ensure that enterprise data on mobile devices and in the cloud isn't "over-exposed," said Perspecsys CMO Gerry Grealish. Enterprises now allow employees to bring their own devices to work, and theft and loss of these devices have become major concerns for enterprises. But now, they also must wrest control of their companies' data in the cloud. Grealish outlines his tips for how CIOs can safeguard and regain control of data. Among the topics he looks at are network design, encryption, key ownership, data-in use and tokenization. Perspecsys is a provider of cloud data protection solutions.
