SENSITIVE DATA LOCATIONS
Conducting an insecure data audit engagement can help an organisation identify locations where users have stored sensitive data on the organisation’s estate.
INADEQUATE USER ACCESS
An insecure data audit engagement can provide insight into the areas of data storage that unintended users can access, such as unintended employees accessing HR case reports.
HANDLING OF CLASSIFIED DATA
Managing data classification restrictions across your estate can be a difficult issue to solve as enterprises often have vast amounts of data spread across various systems. An insecure data audit can find gaps in access controls or instances of classified documents being stored in unsecured areas.
Regulatory compliance such as GDPR, DPA and PCI DSS can become difficult to fully adhere to in a large corporate environment where hundreds or thousands of users contribute content to data storage. An insecure data audit engagement can help find data compliance adherence issues before a data breach incident occurs.
