When we look at the number of clients we work with on a daily basis and the magnitude of industries they represent, it’s pretty easy for us recognize that companies in all verticals are now beginning to understand the importance of securing their data. Of course, there will also be more companies who subscribe to this belief given the nature of their business, the legislations they face and the data they handle on a frequent basis.
Recently, we have found Emergency Services (ES) organizations have taken a significant interest in data encryption and security. These organizations are in a unique situation – the type of data that exists within their networks are complex and varied yet all organizations that fall into the ES umbrella need to have access and share information amongst each other. The very nature of the data is sensitive, as many of these records include Personally Identifiable Information (PII) that could jeopardize lives if it fell into the wrong hands. They need to protect information such as criminal records, informant and undercover information, police operation plans, health records as well as, national security documents. Our prospects in this space tell us “we are seeing the need to protect our data more and more, especially with the advances in technology. But we just aren’t sure where to start.”
So we’ve taken the experiences we’ve had working with many similar organizations and compiled a short and handy eBook detailing exactly what ES organizations need to know to embark onto the journey of data encryption. The eBook covers
- Examples of legislation that agencies may be faced with
- The unknown risks associated with not encrypting your data
- Encryption 101 key insights
- Critical questions you CANNOT afford to forget to ask your vendors
