Preventing lose of important data

I've been running a business for 15 years now. It has only been around five years since we moved all of our data to computers (Yeah before that we used good old hard copies.). So most of our data is kept tracking in this Quality Management software that we use. So recently there was a cyber attack on our PCs, the data in the software was not affected.

But this has got me thinking. There is a chance of losing some important data if there is another attack. So we want to protect our pcs against data loss and a potential attack. What can we do about it?

Re: Preventing lose of important data

Data Loss Prevention is intended to prevent sensitive data from leaving the enviornment. DLP can be used to protect against several different threat vectors like email, web, printers, screen capture, removable media and others.

There is no one solution that can protect an enviornment and multiple vectors must be evaluated for risk.

From your post, it appears you may be looking for a solution to ensure data retention. This is very important when being impacted by ransomware and many other threats. Having a good backup stratagy is critical in most situations and allows for the flexablity to respond to threats in multiple ways and I spoke about this at mPower 2018.

If DLP is the solution that you are looking for, you will want to get in contact with McAfee Sales to request more information.
