For many organisations, information is their most valuable asset. In an increasingly connected environment, information is exposed to a growing number of risks. Comprehensive and tailored Information Protection solutions are fast becoming a must-have to protect against risks like malicious code, hacking, or Denial of Service Attacks (DDoS). The question is no longer whether Information Protection is needed, but what the best method of protection is for your needs.  

What makes an Information Protection Solution great? 

In addition to securing your information, a robust Information Protection solution should provide key benefits to your organisation: 

  • Organisation wide protection: Whether the risk is internal or external, Information Protection solutions should be designed to keep your information safe from reasons ranging from poorly informed staff or inefficient and ineffective solutions.  
  • Centrally Managed: As with most security solutions, Information Protection solutions should provide a centrally managed framework across your entire organisation, allowing for a fast response to threats and a high-level view of your security landscape. 
  • Easy Identification and classification of data: In order to have comprehensive coverage, your Information Protection solution should classify all the facets of your data in your environment, whether paper-based or digital. This classification system will allow you to quickly access the information you need at any given time in a secure manner, without worrying about how secure the rest of your data is.  
  • Adaptive Solutions: Threats to the safety of your information are always evolving. A comprehensive solution to your Information Protection needs should evolve and adapt to incorporate the newest developments in the security sphere.  

The MOQdigital Offer 

Whatever your Information Protection needs, MOQdigital can help with the setup and development of your Information Protection solution within your organisation’s environment, including the offering of a SOC service for ongoing management, response and investigation of incidents. For most organisations, MOQdigital recommends the use of Microsoft’s Azure Information Protection (AIP). AIP helps you discover, classify, label and protect your sensitive information – wherever it lives or travels. This is typically done through sensitivity-labels which drive the classification and protection of individual files via the Azure Rights Management Service (Azure RMS). As AIP is backed by Microsoft, you can expect a highly integrated ecosystem of complementary solutions coming together to help you protect what is most important: your organisation. To begin, MOQdigital offers both Secure Score Workshops and Security Assessments to help you map your current vulnerabilities and establish the best course of action for you.
