CORPORATIONS, BUSINESS EXECUTIVES, how secure is your business secure?
The ‘illusion’ of a secure business still exists today. Corporations need to have strong security policies. A well thought out strategy is the key to good security.
Corporate data center tips.
The following suggestions are offered to protect corporate data centers:
• Two-factor employee authentication, including password protection.
• Data encryption of all data, with tight access controls.
• Review and revise open source encryption solutions regularly. Segregate sensitive data on a separate network, with different degrees of security clearance for access. Update to next generation firewalls to protect against network attacks or compromised URLs. Prohibit potentially affected equipment from connecting to your network (including printer/copy/fax laptops, phones, data drives, and anything not defined).
The only completely secure computer is one which is not networked, has severely limited access, and kept locked up when not in use. This is not practical in business today, but is food for thought. Protect your environment.
Control the areas where sensitive conversations take place, such as the boardroom, your office, and executive conferencing areas.
Control and restrict physical access to secure areas of your office, the boardroom, the office building and grounds, if applicable.

‘Physical access’ still trumps ‘remote access’ anytime, anywhere. Some types of information cannot easily be compromised remotely in quantity or quality. Having physical access to a device such as a cell phone, computer, or phone communications system is enough time for spyware to be installed and data to be copied. Some spy technology does not need to be connected to anything within or outside of your office or building.
