Data Policies


Data Policies

As we close out our final lesson for this Chapter for on Application Security Controls and Techniques, we want to thoroughly discuss Data Policies and why they are so critical to establishing and maintain a secure networking and operating environment to minimize the unauthorized exposure of data.

We look at why it’s important to have, review and update Data Policies for shared media, for the disposal of old or damaged or outdated media.

Of equal importance is having an active data retention policy that defines data and document life cycles.  You’ll learn why updated and consistent document/data disposal schedules and procedures, policies, who performs what action(s), and other related factors are key to preventing unauthorized exposure of data and data stored on media devices.
