Our Data Classification Solution integrates technology with business transformation methods to manage factors too often left out of a security project. We leverage what’s already going well in your organization, while shifting to higher potential.
What to Avoid
Whether you’re introducing data classification for the first time or your organization already has guidelines in place, our experience shows that projects stir up more questions from employees about the classification schema than about using a technology that might be deployed to support it.
However, most projects put technology center stage and ignore the change it is forcing in the business. This puts the project focus at odds with the focus the audience has. It makes the project more difficult and riskier than it needs to be. It also reduces the ultimate pay-off that’s available from your investment.

- “Data now feels like an asset. You’ve made data feel tangible… [In] the past, if a former colleague asked for a copy of policy to benchmark, I had no clear basis for saying ‘No.’ Now, I can say it is classified… and I don’t have authority to release it.

Securing your crown jewel assets, one household at a time.
Over 90% of most companies’ value now comes from intangible assets. In addition to Intellectual Property (IP), brand reputation, competitive advantage, supplier network, employee retention, and customer loyalty are measurably affected by cyberattacks. Research shows some of the most damaging losses coming from trusted insiders with malicious intent, also called Insider Threat.
The biggest gains come from proactive attention to Insider Threat, that is, don’t chase after the horse that’s gotten away, keep it from leaving the stable.
Threat actors are increasingly exploiting the path of least resistance in the supply chain to attack their real targets. While more large companies have built a reasonable cybersecurity posture, malicious actors still find easy ingress through abundant open doors in smaller suppliers.
Supply chain attacks have skyrocketed to the point where targeted companies are motivated to manage their own risk by managing the risk hiding in their supply chain.
