ScottMadden, Inc., a general management consulting firm, has released a three-part series focused on data protection for shared services. This report examines data loss risks to help mitigate a Shared Services Organization’s (SSO) specific risk factors, and it provides a step-by-step guide to build the foundation for a shared services data protection program, including the essential core elements to ensure a successful program.
SSOs control much of a company’s confidential personal information. This is exactly the kind of information prized by cyber criminals. Because employees access this data to perform their jobs, there is additional risk of this sensitive data being compromised, either maliciously or unintentionally. Implementing technology is not enough. Are SSOs taking the proactive steps to mitigate the risk of data loss and its consequences?
“Securing corporate information is seen as the information security organization’s job. But, additional measures need to be taken for SSOs because their data security risks are so high. Too often this is overlooked, until it is too late. ScottMadden helps SSO leaders take ownership of their data, raising awareness of these risks and ensuring that they are addressed appropriately,” said Jon Kerner, partner and technology practice lead at ScottMadden.
