Experts recognize data security is a problem for all organizations. Effective security requires knowing where the data is stored, understanding how/when it is used and finally protecting it from getting into the wrong hands. Not protecting your data can lead to costly remediation efforts, noncompliance, and negative publicity. forID can help maintain your data integrity, reliability, and accessibility.
Electronic Discovery (eDiscovery) is a method to identify and archive electronic information, or data, that is often used for legal processes. Leveraging eDiscovery tools such as Microsoft Purview allows you to search for content in Exchange Online, OneDrive, SharePoint, Teams and other stores. Taking it a step further, using eDiscovery allows the archiving of data across many technology solutions in your environment.
Implement strategies and solutions that discover data across your organization. The drivers are to enhance data visibility and prepare the organization in gathering legal evidence.
forID will work with your organization’s technical and legal teams to develop queries and criteria to ensure the right data is being filtered for legal processing.
While performing the discovery process, we find stale data and make recommendations on clean up to begin good data hygiene practices.
eDiscovery is a continuous process required to maintain good data governance standards. We will build your organization a roadmap and strategy to continuously optimize your data searches.
Knowing what data you have is meaningless without understanding what for or how it is being used by your organization. Data classification is a means to take unstructured data in large volumes and tag it with compliance, sensitivity and other labels to help build policies to better secure it.
Based on your data records, we apply sensitivity labels across data that are considered Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Financial data, or Health Insurance Act (HIPAA) regulated information. We continue applying labels down the sensitivity requirements until public data is identified.
We work together to categorize the data in other ways (e.g. department labels) that can be helpful for your organization. forID’s security SMEs will suggest labels based on our knowledge of your organization.
forID will bridge business requirements and industry best practices to suggest retention policies for each data set based on its sensitivity level.
forID leverages its global team of security professionals to monitor your network for data changes, policy violations and use of labels. While new data is introduced, we constantly review the labels and reapply any classification standards as needed.
DLP protects the unauthorized access and use of your data after it has been discovered and classified. DLP solutions actively monitor your data based on sensitivity labels and prevent sensitive or critical information from leaving the corporate network. A necessary security measure, DLP solutions protect from insider threats and are often required by data privacy laws.
forID will work with your IT team to identify when the data is at risk (e.g. at rest, when moving via emails). This allows our DLP approach to be robust with the mobility of your data.
Our DLP implementation will allow your organization to have full visibility of data as it moves from system to system, or person to person. DLP policies will be modified to support the data in motion.
forID works with departments to control the motion of data to ensure it flows only as needed. This reduces data risk and promotes good data hygiene.
DLP systems inform security professionals of data use that may violate pre-set policies. However, as your data continues to evolve and new methods of sharing data continue to be adopted, forID assists with monitoring and refreshing policies to keep your organization secure.
