Information is the most valuable asset of companies. With each passing day, companies store more data that needs to be addressed to provide the inputs needed for effective and informed decision-making. When the information is not well treated and analyzed, the more likely the company is to make the wrong decisions that will undermine its functioning. Thus, it is essential to know how to deal with the information and it is necessary to eliminate all the barriers that prevent the good treatment of the data. In today’s article, we present the 5 most common errors in the treatment of information you need to eliminate right now!

Error # 1: Working without Goals

In today’s business world, which is so competitive, it is very important that companies set general and specific goals, because only then will they know what strategy to follow in order to achieve the desired results. Each employee must work with specific KPI’s that are appropriate to their function, because only in this way will they be able to evaluate the data and transform it into useful and beneficial information for the pursuit of their work.

Error # 2: Fail to keep pace with rapid technological change

Today, technology is evolving at breakneck speeds, making companies constantly face the challenge of being up to date constantly. Nowadays, real-time analysis is already a reality in many companies. If it was enough years ago to know what was happening in the company a few days after the events, today this reality is completely changed. Analyzing business information in real time is the first step (and we can risk saying that it is the most important) to be able to decide consciously and effectively. Many companies still make the mistake of basing their reporting on a few days. Systems like Multipeers are becoming more and more indispensable in today’s business world.

Error # 3: Give the same access to all employees

This error is linked to information security, which is one of the most important aspects, but that companies still do not pay attention to this. Company information should not be accessible to all employees in the same way. Each employee must have access only to part of the information they need to perform their work. This will allow the collaborator to focus more easily and, at the same time, will allow to discover the origin of an eventual leak of information.

Error # 4: Do not back up the data

It seems like a very basic advice, but unfortunately many companies have not yet implemented a serious backup policy. We live in an increasingly connected world and with more and more virtual threats. Therefore, it is essential that you be prepared for any situation that could put the security of your information at risk. These days, putting a security password in your most important files is no longer enough. Making backups of data frequently is a critical step in ensuring that you will not lose sensitive data of the utmost importance. In addition, it is advisable to use a disaster recovery system such as RAAS. Disaster recovery should be regarded as a must have in companies as it is the guarantee that the most important information of the company is safeguarded and that the company will continue to function properly even when computer problems happen.

Error # 5: Create complex reports

The tendency of managers is to create reports with many pages and complex terms that make it difficult to analyze them. The ideal is to make short reports that contain only the information essential to making the right decisions for the business. Create appealing and easy-to-read graphics because through these elements it will be easier to convey your message and better understand the data. If you complicate too much the presentation of the information, it will discourage the employees who have to make their analysis!

The year 2018 is nearing of its end and it is, therefore, time to speak of tendencies. Data security is an issue that is increasingly in need of attention, especially in this year marked by the entry into force of the new general data protection regulation. Keeping an eye on the trends in this area is the first step to being able to protect your data in the best way possible and to ensure that confidential business information is not exposed. In today’s article, we present 5 trends in data security!

Information Security in the Cloud

Cloud has been gaining more and more fans all over the World. Using cloud solutions ensures greater mobility and a wider choice of options. However, we can not make the mistake of putting the information in the Cloud so that it stays protected. Because Cloud storage enables company files to be viewed on any mobile device, it is critical to ensure that these devices stay protected. Storing business information in the Cloud is very important to keep information secure, but it is not enough to ensure this: it is mandatory to ensure that the devices are all protected.

Creation of policy for use of technology resources

Technology is part of everyday life for all employees of a company and this is a risk to data security. It is necessary to define how technological resources can be used in the work environment, through the creation of standards for the use of removable devices, the opening of personal e-mails, among other factors considered relevant. The use of a pen with a virus, for example, can contaminate a company’s entire network, compromising information security.

Secure passwords policy

It is believed that 90% of passwords are vulnerable and can be discovered quite easily. The password is the main resource for a user to access a system, so it is essential that it is strong and secure. It should be changed quite frequently (it is advisable to change it every 90 days). Thus, the company should create a document with rules on the creation of passwords, as this area is often seen with little seriousness, which can compromise the security of the business.

Data backup

This should be a common practice and mandatory in all companies, but in many cases there is no policy of any kind regarding data backup. In order for a company to ensure that your information stays safe, you need to frequently perform backups of your information. This backup must exist in several environments, so that in case of a computer attack the information remains protected. It is also advisable to use a data recovery system in the Cloud, such as RAAS. Thus, in case of extreme attacks, it is possible to recover all the information that was the target of the attack.

Tailored security solutions

The cybersecurity market is evolving into a new paradigm of solutions as they resolve the specific “pains” of each client. With companies increasingly demanding information security, IT solution providers are starting to offer more personalized approaches, taking into account the size and complexity of each company’s IT infrastructure. A more personalized approach will allow companies to adopt solutions exclusively tailored to their needs.
