Using Technology and People to Help Protect Against Data Breaches

Don Miller

Most of us in the data security industry know that a data breach is the most common and costly data security failure for a company of any size. We also know that we have technology to help prevent these attacks—e.g., encryption, firewalls, network monitoring, etc. But if you are waiting for technology alone to solve all your issues, then as my favorite rock group of all time would say, “Dream On”.   It’s true that technology is getting smarter, but this can be undermined when your employees are not trained to play defense. Protecting data systems requires both the technical and human elements to be synchronized.

I recently read an article written by Edward W. Marx, CIO & Senior VP of Texas Health Resources, titled “Data security is every employee’s responsibility”. The article highlights how Texas Health Resources takes a proactive approach to training its employees to keep their data secure.  This training and heightened awareness ensures that employees at all levels of the organization know the threats and the defensive measures.
