Privacy & Security

Are you considering Cloud Computing for your Information Governance (IG) needs?

A short list of security considerations for Cloud:

  • Private clouds – Dedicated servers and databases to only one organization
  • Physical access – Limit access to only those that might need to physically touch equipment
  • Data encryption – Encrypt data in motion and data at rest
  • Device authentication – Trust devices in addition to users
  • System updates and patches – Apply security updates as soon as possible
  • Secure disk wiping – Securely erase temporary data from disk drives
  • Network architecture – Databases beyond firewalls and web data on front-end servers
  • Logging – Track all activity to detect intrusions
  • Policy/Governance – Consistently review policies and procedures for improvement
