Hi!

This is Pushkar Nath, Sujata's Data Security Specialist. This blog is for CXOs in Manufacturing Industry to understand what data security threats are around us and how to keep the data safe from the threats.

In today’s tech savvy world, where systems are getting automated, it is leaving vulnerable points which render an organization prone to data leak. We will do critical analysis sector wise to pinpoint the leak points and ways to plug them. Today I am picking up manufacturing sector for critical analysis

End Users – It can be anyone designing team, people from R&D department, data entry executive, receptionist etc. There is possibility of malware infection through internet and spreading it in local area network and crashing down the entire network. Apart from that it might be possible that they might try to send documents or critical organization data through USB, mails or web. This can be prevented by using Antiviruses, data loss prevention, web and Messaging gateway protection. Hard disc, file and folder and removable USB level Encryption

Accounts/Finance Department – This department handles one of the most critical assignments of an organization and that is to manage the entire financial dealing and transactions. Any leakage of financial details might prove detrimental to the organization. This department is prone to phishing attack. . Antiviruses, data loss prevention, web and messaging gateway protection, Hard disc, file and folder and removable USB level Encryption  endpoint to endpoint encryption with two factor authentication will provide adequate security to this department.

Human Resource department – Human resource department has under its possession entire record of the employees. As manufacturing sector is labour intensive sector so every company has long list of labours doing blue collar and white collar jobs.  Companies doling out financial services are always on prowl for these type of database.  Security becomes necessary. Antiviruses, data loss prevention, messaging gateway protection, hard disc, file and folder and removable USB level Encryption becomes critical necessity of this department.

Sales and marketing Dept. – This department generates revenue for an organization. They have data of their clients and their requirements. As personals from this department remains mobile. So BYOD is gaining currency among them. . Antiviruses, data loss prevention, web and messaging gateway protection, Hard disc, file and folder and removable USB level Encryption  , gateway to end point mail  encryption , mobile device management, mobile application management coupled with two factor authentication will provide adequate protection to the devices, application and data.

IT Department – This department manages the entire IT infrastructure of an organization. It has to manage server infrastructure, networking, end points of the users.  Its role becomes critical in the sense that if it gets down then functioning of the entire organization will come down to notch. The first product which is of extreme importance for them is back up software for end points and servers. Second is archiving and third is solution for hardware and software inventory management.

Top Management – This level of management is privy to secrets of all the above mentioned departments. Any IT admin can’t stop them from accessing there date/mails etc from their own device or from home. Security becomes critical as any intentional or unintentional loss of data, documents can have a devastating effect on the entire organization. Antiviruses, data loss prevention, web and messaging gateway protection, Hard disc, file and folder and removable USB level Encryption  endpoint  to end point  mail  encryption , mobile device management, mobile application management coupled with two factor authentication will provide adequate protection to the devices, applications and data.
