Protect the Sensitive Data in Your Care
As digital initiatives shift applications and users to the cloud and mobile platforms, modern organizations are faced with even more data growth, in more places. The constant threat of unauthorized access across this expanding attack surface places sensitive consumer and organizational information at higher risk.
Knowing what data needs to be protected, controlling its access and siloed organizational ownership of data in general are common challenges in today’s environments from the ground to the cloud.
Data protection strategies aid organizations in safeguarding against both internal and external threats, data corruption and data loss. The processes include a mix of managing the movement of data on- and offline, cataloging data assets and making critical business data available in all cases.
Did You Know?

of breaches in 2020 involved personal data
Data protection prevents PII and other sensitive information from being stolen and used for fraudulent activities like identity theft, phishing and hacking. Some organizations store this data (names, emails, addresses, health information, phone numbers and credit card or financial information) as well as employee records, customer details, loyalty programs and transactions.
Also called information privacy law, data protection laws exist to protect the personal data of residents of the United States.
There’s no overarching US federal legislation impacting data protection. Still, several federal data protection laws exist that are sector-specific: The Gramm Leach Bliley Act (GLBA), the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) are just a few.
In addition, some US states have adopted data breach notification legislation, including New York’s SHIELD Act, Illinois’s Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA), California’s Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) and Virginia’s Consumer Data Protection Act (CDPA).
Your users – and your business – rely on having access to your ever-growing stores of data. Optiv data protection offerings play a key role in safeguarding your data from compromise, corruption, and loss – thereby assuring your data’s availability. By partnering with Optiv, you gain our broad perspective on the “bigger picture” of data protection – including how data governance and data privacy policies influence its requirements and how data protection supports your larger cybersecurity efforts. Our unique role as both advisor and implementer guides you seamlessly from strategy creation to execution of your data protection program using technologies that fit your specific needs.
Count on Optiv for data protection solutions that allow you to count on your data.
Optiv data protection offerings are a component of the Optiv Data Practice, which also includes Data Governance and Data Privacy. Our team of seasoned experts applies a strategy-first approach to define the requirements for and implement measures that protect the information in your care:
Before enabling data with technology, determine the best use of existing controls, business rules and solutions for data at-rest, in-motion and in-use.
Identify, mitigate and remediate user and machine threats recognized in Active Directory and Azure AD. Develop the architecture, install, configure, optimize, and tune data security solutions including encryption, tokenization, obfuscation, redaction and public key infrastructure (PKI).
Create and enforce rules, policies and controls that limit data access to the lowest permissions level possible. Policies cover data ownership, access provisioning, data storage, backup and recovery, data protection and data maintenance.
Assist in defining and operationalizing a comprehensive DLP approach that leverages tools and processes to limit unauthorized access, use, sharing or other means of data egress.
Define and implement a solution to manage cloud services, streamline the onboarding process for new cloud services and applications, and minimize the risk of data loss.
Use regulatory and compliance standards as a foundation to monitor file activity for breaches and internal threats, analyze and report.
Optiv Data Protection experts bring a unique blend of business and depth of technical knowledge not often seen in the industry. It’s no wonder clients rely on these strengths to design and implement solutions that keep data available but protected and ensure rapid recovery – regardless of the cause.
Each client has unique requirements for data protection and availability. We address your needs using a vendor-agnostic approach that reflects a “best-fit” in terms of technology.
