So there we have it, a year of unfortunate mishaps, and many more besides that. But how do you avoid being next year’s talk of the town...
Well maybe a few resolutions would help:
1. I resolve to put in place security layers such as File Access Control and Version Control according to our company’s policy so that only authorized users will be able to delete or modify documents.
2. I resolve to implement monitoring and auditing features to insure that all activities are logged, and that reports can be issued and sent according to a notification process.
3. I resolve to put controls in place to ensure that users cannot copy confidential information to unauthorised systems.
This would be at the very least a start, but in the event that you find this all too much trouble, and you think that this kind of stuff only happens to other people.
4. I resolve to look into a good personal liability insurance policy… because the chances are I might need it.
