dotnext is a specialist for the delivery of Data Security and operational Data life-cycle architectures, with a strategy driven by a Data Classification foundation. Only by identifying the business value of data can organisations make intelligent, deliberate decisions on how the information is managed, consumed and protected. This forms the basis of an effective Data governance strategy. Our solutions in the data space address data at rest as well as data in motion controls, which enables organisations to effectively manage access to sensitive data.
The ability to discover and classify data based on content and its context to the business are a critical starting point to any data security / data privacy initiative. The requirement to classify data is relevant to existing data accumulated over years within a business, but also important when new data is being created. This ensures data can be protected with the correct policies from inception. Our solutions cover the classification of data in structured and unstructured repositories, and provide organisations the ability to understand where their critical data is, which is a vital first step to being able to adequately protect data
Having visibility and an audit trail of who accessed or modified what data within an organisation, plays a critical part in securing the data and ensuring that data is not misused or exfiltrated.
This is relevant to unstructured data (file servers, SharePoint etc.) and especially on database repositories, which typically house critical and sensitive data.
Database activity monitoring solutions help to ensure the security, privacy and integrity of data. These solutions also provide the ability to mask sensitive information from database administrators in order to implement a “need to know” approach to sensitive data in these repositories.
Data Governance is being mandated due to regulations like POPIA and GDPR. Data Governance seeks to empower data owners to answer 4 critical questions with regards to data privacy and security:
Do you know where your sensitive data is?
Do you know who has access to the data?
Is the access appropriate (ie. Do the right people have access only to the right data)
Can you prove it? (Do you have irrefutable evidence of who had access to what data and what they did with it?)
dotnext has a comprehensive Data Governance methodology that can assist organisations in adopting and deploying these solutions to address requirements related to data security, governance, and privacy, driven by POPIA / GDPR and other regulatory frameworks
