While keeping your office building secure from intruders is important, it’s equally important to keep your data centers safe from intruders. This is where your company stores sensitive client information that could be prime target for theft, which is why you need to do all you can to keep it safe.

While of course you know where your company’s physical data center is, you may want to ask yourself whether you know where sensitive data is located on your company’s computer system.

A recent survey by the Ponemon Institute revealed that of over 1,500 IT security professionals who help protect sensitive client information for a living, only 16 percent knew where their organization’s sensitive structured data resides on their computer system.

Biometric security devices can protect your office and data center from would-be thieves, but it’s your responsibility to know exactly where sensitive data lives in your company’s computer system so you can go the extra mile to protect it from hackers.
