VDR for cybersecurity is a vital tool for any business that relies on the safekeeping of sensitive information. Even companies who don’t share documents with external parties may have to share sensitive data with internal teams or legal counsel. They need to be able to do so without taking the risk of being a victim of cybertheft.
A good VDR is one that has access control and multi-factor authentication mechanisms, along with monitoring the file’s activity to spot any possible illegal actions. It should also have a feature that allows administrators to determine who has accessed data and when, which is useful to conduct security investigation. It can also encode and watermark files in order to prevent the tampering with sensitive information.
Some of the measures suggested in IEC 61996-1, such as using a tool or key for access, restricting access to proprietary software and interfaces and using seals or stickers to signal that there is a tampering incident are useful. However they don’t help protect against the threats described in this paper which require access the operating system. The password requirements in this standard only apply to the data that is being recorded. They do not apply to access to the interface of the device, which could be exploited to bypass the security.
It is important to remember that a VDR for cybersecurity requires a broad approach, beginning with choosing the right solution and fostering user adoption. Businesses should also make sure to invest in regular audits and system improvements to ensure the safety of their data. If there is no VDR for cybersecurity is not in place, companies are at risk of data breaches, which could have serious financial penalties.
