This insurance document crossed our desks recently – and we think all IT security professionals and managers should be aware of its message within:

Among the minimum measures that Cybersecurity Insurance providers expect Australian organisations to have taken now includes encryption-at-rest of Personal Identifiable Information (source: ACP).

Our mission remains to provide affordable sensitive data discovery and masking/encryption solutions to organisations of all sizes, across all data sources and platforms. Please reach out if we can help.
