Best Practices for Data Security Global Governance, Risk & Compliance:
Additional Best Practices for Data Security Global Governance, Risk & Compliance:

- Be aware of the data that is being sent out of your control, either to an employee's cloud, the organizations own cloud, an employee's flash drive or via any of the 65,000+ available channels. It only takes a few seconds for a trusted employee or untrusted entity (e.g. malware) to send data such as PII or PCI to the cloud or "phone home", violating compliance regulations &/ or policy. You need to understand and know what data was sent, from where and to where it's going.

- Know what data you can send out of the network and where to. When data travels cross borders, as it does so often, the risk increases on an exponential basis for the data owner.

- Detection accuracy ensures you protect the correct data with the proper control and be alerted to irregular activity. Some data needs to be blocked, some just encrypted while other information can leave without any issue. Many "DLP" solutions cannot accurately provide both the content & context awareness to respond.

Re: 7-step program
Marilyn, good questions. I would add to those: Who should lead the effort? And are some companies "too far gone" start over with data management?

Re: 7-step program
Certainly database admins and security, but I would also say line of business people should be involved as well to make sure there is an understanding of what data is truly critical. That seems like a good start to me.

7-step program
Good blog, Todd. Curious to know how long it takes to develop a data management plan and who is involved in the process.
