Windows Information Protection (WIP) | Avoid Data Leaks by Automatically Classifying and Protecting Files

Windows-Information-Protection---WIP

Windows Information Protection (WIP) is a data loss prevention feature for Windows 10 (version 1607 or later) that can automatically apply protective tags for files and data. Thus, allowing end-users to be productive and still keep your organization’s data secure!
______________________________________________

What is Windows Information Protection (WIP)?

Windows Information Protection (WIP) is an alternative to traditional data loss prevention approaches that focus on protecting data leakage at the network level. WIP protects against both accidental and intentional leakage of data by automatically encrypting internal data anytime users save a file locally to a protected Windows 10 system. Protecting organizational data is critical - now more than ever before! Lawsuits, legal challenges, and/or a loss of reputation is at stake if an organization is not successful in protecting their data. The ongoing blend of work and home life – especially in a COVID-19 world isn’t making that easier. More and more, we see end-users utilizing their work provided devices for personal tasks and data management. Similarly, end-users will access organizational data on their personal devices, which makes protecting your data tricky. WIP provides peace of mind and helps protect critical data regardless of where it’s accessed from. WIP not only helps protect files on end-users’ devices but can also be used to remotely wipe a device clean if needed via Intune. By selecting the user and device and sending a wipe request, all data that was protected via the WIP policy will become unusable.

Cybersecurity: Roadmap to a Secure Environment

Cybersecurity-roadmap-to-a-secure-environment

With an everchanging threat environment, organizations are struggling to keep up and protect their data and organization from security attacks. Learn how to stay ahead of attacks and start creating a more secure environment!
_________________________________

In a world with constantly changing threats, securing your information and organization can be challenging. Understanding where your organization’s security is and where you want it to be is crucial. Specific environment needs, along with the sensitivity of data, can vary tremendously from organization to organization. This article addresses how to understand your security landscape and steps to improve moving forward!

Ad Hoc Is No Longer Adequate for Effective Cybersecurity Protection

A common strategy used by security teams is to address threats and attacks on an ad hoc basis. While this may have worked in the past, organizations can no longer wait until an attack or threat happens to respond. Being proactive by staying ahead of attackers and phishing schemes is now vital for an organization’s security plan. Cybersecurity Ventures estimates that a ransomware attack is made on a business every 14 seconds!

Current Security Difficulties

According to a recent report on Security Analytics and Operations, sixty-three percent of survey respondents find cybersecurity analytics/operations more difficult today than they were two years ago. This increasing difficulty is prevalent across cybersecurity disciplines, impacting the ability of organizations to not only protect critical assets but also detect and respond to cyber-attacks in a timely fashion.

With more and more data coming in than ever, it is hard to process and secure data efficiently. Data attacks and security threats have also drastically increased – proving that now is the most crucial time to have a secure environment and plan.
