NJVC is marking the worldwide Cyber Privacy Day by releasing a white paper authored by Robert Michalsky, a company cybersecurity principal.
The goal of Michalsky’s paper, NJVC said, is to examine the need for security metrics, cyber analytics and human intelligence to track information technology system anomalies and cyber threats before enterprises are hit.
“As a champion of Data Privacy Day, NJVC hopes this white paper will serve as a best practice for minimizing organizational exposure to data leaks,” Michalsky said. “Securing data is a responsibility we all share because so much critical, personally identifiable information is stored across a wide range of public and private systems.
At the enterprise level, keeping data safe means granting access for specific types of data to specific people who require access to do their jobs, and monitoring this access continuously. “
Michalsky argues organizations and individuals can only respect and enforce data privacy by having a set of security metrics for analyzing and monitoring compliance regularly.
Federal government and private sector organizations have different sets of security guidelines but Michalsky says both need enterprise security frameworks in place in order to ensure privacy procedures and policies are being followed.
