How to prevent data breaches
Last month, The Online Trust Alliance released a guide called the 2011 Data Breach & Loss Incident Readiness Guide. These guidelines are intended to help agencies and corporations prevent, detect, and respond to data security breaches.
Businesses are in need for support to help implement secure data handling practices. This will prove to be an extremely valuable tool for any organization that houses sensitive data. Framework for a data loss prevention, incident response, and even training & budgeting are included in this guide.
The Online Trust Alliance is a nonprofit organization focused on identifying best practices for ensuring privacy and data security. The Alliance has worked with the Federal CIO Council and the White House task force developing the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace.
