Data security is the process of protecting digital information from unauthorized access, corruption, or theft throughout its entire lifecycle. It’s a concept that encompasses every aspect of information security from the physical security of hardware and storage devices, administrative and access controls, logical security of software applications, and organizational policies and procedures. When properly implemented, data security strategies will protect an organization’s information assets against cyberattacks, as well as guard against insider threats and human error, which remains among the leading causes of data breaches.
