Data-Centric Security

Protect what matters most to your business

No organization is immune to cyberattacks. SHI helps you address the security challenges of our “new normal” and protect critical data no matter where it is stored, used, or transmitted.

Speak with a Security specialist

Many organizations don’t know where all of their sensitive data is, making it impossible to ensure security and comply with data privacy laws. SHI’s Data-Centric Security offerings enable you to identify and secure “crown jewel” data.

We partner with you to develop an end-to-end, data-centric security program that facilitates complete control over sensitive data, from the point of creation through the entire data lifecycle.

Our solutions enable visibility into the location of your sensitive data, how it flows within the organization and where it is at risk. By evaluating the current state of your security program, developing a prioritized roadmap for improvement, and putting data at the heart of your security strategy, we help you establish exactly what you are trying to protect and ensure the appropriate controls are in place.

Data Centric Approach

Why take a Data-Centric Security approach?

As cyber threats and data breaches increase in number, you need an effective and efficient security strategy to protect your sensitive data. SHI can help you design and implement a data-centric security strategy that will help:


Gain insight into your current data security plan

Traditional approaches to security are often based on business processes and workflows. This can end up creating data silos that make it hard to gauge the effectiveness of your security initiatives across your environment. SHI can help you audit your data security plan and make recommend changes that can increase data protection from unauthorized access, theft, compromise, or misuse.


Create a data class system to label valuable data

In an ocean of data, a well-defined data classification system can group different data types to make them easier to locate, retrieve, and track. Our experts can help you design a data classification framework that will organize your data, assign metadata or other informative tags which will allow machines and software to instantly sort it into the assigned groups and categories.


Stop the misuse of your sensitive data

Data misuse means using information in a way it was not intended to be used. Data usage guidelines are typically detailed in laws, industry standards, and user agreements. SHI experts can help you create a data security strategy that includes capabilities like identity and access management, user education, continuous user monitoring and behavior analysis, and need-to-know access.


Enhance awareness efforts to reduce threats

Awareness is still a challenge for organizations. Obstacles like identifying the type of training you need to deliver and low levels of employee engagement can make it difficult to implement security awareness activities. SHI can provide the guidance you need to train your workforce in identifying and reacting to cyber threats while promoting a culture of cyber security awareness.


Meet data protection and privacy regulations

Global data regulations are changing day by day, from the establishment of new regulations to fluctuations in the political climate. To continue to do business globally, you must stay on top of global data protection regulations. Our experts can help you identify security tools you can rely on to keep data private and secure while you focus on accelerating digital transformation.


Avoid reputational and monetary loss from a breach

You are less likely to see a decline in reputation or stock price if you have a strong security strategy based on the right investment in processes, people, and the technologies that meet your business needs. SHI can help you develop the processes and procure the correct technology components needed to create a security strategy that can minimize the negative impact of a data breach.


You can’t put data in armor before allowing access by your workforce

The next best option is to make sure your security strategy is focused on protecting what matters most – your data. Our experts can help you design and implement a data-centric security strategy that can help protect your employee, customer, and business data from cyber attackers whether it lives in an on-premises data center or in the cloud, regardless of who interacts with it, giving you a huge advantage in this age of Digital Transformation.
