Importance of Data Security

In this lesson we cover the importance of data security.  You’ll learn why data security is a concern, what types of products exist to address security breaches and define several key types of data breaches and data security risks.

For example, using Chats and IMs as an example, we take a look at how users can interact on the internet access, using open/unlocked workstations attached to the network, and other examples the security breaches that occur from a lack of good security practices.  And we contrast them with why best practice solutions, sound, ongoing corporate & technology policies & practices.

We also reinforce why good end user communication to assure they know about and understand the restrictions put in place are all interrelated when it comes to data security and the security of network assets.
