Privacy & Cards Discovery Assessment

Card Discovery Overview

Most organizations understand where sensitive data should reside within their environment, but due to the interrelationships of business processes and dynamic data usage to support management information, operations, engineering and marketing, data tends to ‘leak’ and reside in systems, applications, databases and file shares that do not adequately protect that information from unauthorized access, modification and destruction.
Locating and protecting specific types of confidential information is a core component of a proactive security and data management process and is a key requirement within most industry related standards and regulations, such as PCI and HIPAA.
