DATA SECURITY MANAGEMENT

Take a Proactive Stance on Data & App Security

What Is Data & App Security Management and Why Is It Important?

Data security management is how your business protects data against unauthorized access and threats, ensuring its integrity and confidentiality. Similarly, app security management is how you safeguard software applications from vulnerabilities and threats, maintaining their functionality and data security across multiple third-party channels.

Our Data & App Security solution provides both types of protection, securing your information and your software together.

FAQs About Data & App Security Management

Need help explaining data & app security management to a colleague or other stakeholder? Start here.

Data security management includes best practice services that help companies protect their digital information – all types of files, documents, videos, and more. Some key activities are:

  • Vulnerability Scans and Testing – Conducting regular assessments to identify and address security weaknesses.
  • Database and Cloud Security – Managing access and safeguarding data stored in databases and cloud environments.
  • Data Masking and Encryption – Hiding sensitive information and encrypting data to protect against exfiltration.
  • Incident Response Planning – Preparing for and managing data incidents (breaches, BEC, ransomware, etc.), including communication strategies.
  • Data Recovery and Backup – Ensuring the ability to restore data in case of loss or corruption.
  • Monitoring and Auditing – Tracking data access and usage and auditing for compliance and early threat detection.
  • Access Control and Authentication – Implementing robust access management, including multi-factor authentication, to restrict access to sensitive data.
  • Data Minimization – Keeping only necessary data.

App security management includes activities that focus on software application security, as opposed to focusing on data security (see above). Some leading app security management practices are:

  • Vulnerability Testing – This includes static and dynamic code testing for identifying security weaknesses.
  • Continuous Monitoring – Ongoing monitoring that detects and addresses security issues.
  • Cloud-Native Security – Specialized security measures for cloud-based applications, including infrastructure as code.
  • Access Control and Authentication – Robust mechanisms to prevent unauthorized application access.
  • Regular Updates and Patching – Keeping software components consistently updated to mitigate vulnerabilities.
  • Data Encryption – Protecting sensitive data with encryption both in transit and at rest.
  • Compliance with Standards – Adhering to security standards such as OWASP, ISO/IEC 27001, and NIST Framework.
  • Developer Training – Ensuring developers are trained in security best practices​​​​​​​​.

An example of data security management is using encryption to prevent hackers from extracting sensitive information from any digital files they access. Additional examples include:

  • Regular Vulnerability Testing – Scanning for and fixing security weaknesses.
  • Robust Database Security – Managing access and protecting data in databases.
  • Data Classification – Categorizing data based on its sensitivity and content, and applying security measures based on the classification.
  • Incident Response Plans – Preparing for and managing data breaches.
  • Data Recovery Strategies – Ensuring data can be restored after loss or corruption.
  • Frequent Software Updates – Patching known vulnerabilities in software.
  • Strong Access Control – Implementing methods like multi-factor authentication.
  • Employee Security Training – Educating staff on data security practices.
  • Adherence to Security Standards – Following standards like ISO/IEC 27001 or NIST.
  • Encryption – Securing data in transit and at rest​​​​​​.

An example of app security management is configuring firewalls with specific protocols for how to handle data from software applications. Other common examples include:   

  • Penetration Testing – Identifying and fixing app vulnerabilities.
  • Cloud Security – Ensuring the security of cloud-native applications through continuous scanning.
  • Adherence to Security Standards – Following guidelines like OWASP for threat management.
  • Secure Development and Production – Protecting both the development and production environments.
  • Careful Use of Third-Party Libraries – To avoid introducing vulnerabilities.
  • Restricting User Privileges – Limiting access within the app to enhance security.
  • Regular Testing and Updates – Continuously updating the app to address new security threats.
  • Secure Communication Protocols – Using HTTPS for encrypted data transmission.
  • Runtime Protection – Implementing RASP for proactive security during app runtime.

These practices collectively contribute to stronger app security management, addressing potential risks and ensuring the safety of the application from development to deployment​​​​​​​​.

The kinds of apps that benefit from app security management cover a range of threats and challenges that stem from unique vulnerabilities. Specifically, apps that require next-level security management include: 

  • Cloud Native Applications – Require specialized security tools due to their complex, microservices architecture.
  • Web Applications – Vulnerable to internet threats, necessitating measures like web application firewalls.
  • Mobile Applications – Exposed to risks on public networks, requiring tailored security solutions.
  • API Security – Essential for protecting sensitive data transmitted via Application Programming Interfaces.
  • Conventional and Cloud-Based Applications – Face different challenges, with cloud apps needing specific attention due to less environmental control and increased network exposure​​​​​​.
