There is no shortage of information about the many data breach risks a company can face.  Similarly, there is no shortage of information about steps companies can take to reduce these risks.

For good reason, many articles about preventing data breaches focus on the most common issues facing companies, and typically discuss the critical data that you and your company access on a daily basis. This is considered data in motion.  However, archived data on your server that hasn’t been accessed in a while, considered data at rest, is often overlooked.

 

Failing to pay proper attention to the security of data at rest can have significant consequences.  That’s why here at The TEK, we are proponents of implementing an Encryption At Rest strategy.

Unsure if your data at rest is properly encrypted?  We can help.  Contact us as solutions@thetek.com.
