VDR for Cybersecurity

VDR for cybersecurity is an essential tool for any company that relies on the secure storage of sensitive information. Even companies that don’t share documents with external parties may have to share sensitive data with internal teams or legal counsel. They should be able to share this information without the risk of cyber theft.

A reliable VDR has multi-factor authentication and access control mechanisms, along with monitoring the file’s activity to detect any possible unauthorized actions. It should also include an option that allows administrators to keep track of who used the data and at what time. This is beneficial for security investigations. It is also required to protect files from watermarking and encryption to prevent tampering sensitive data.

Some of the measures suggested in IEC 61996-1, including needing a key or a tool to gain access, limiting access to interfaces and software that are proprietary, and using seals or stickers to display evidence that tampering is taking place can be helpful. However they are not enough to protect against the threats described in this paper which require access the operating system. The requirements for passwords in this standard only cover the data being recorded. They do not apply to the accessible interface of the device which could be used to bypass the security.

It is crucial to remember that the use of a VDR solution for cybersecurity requires a comprehensive strategy, beginning with choice of the best solution and encouraging users to adopt it. To ensure the security and privacy of their data, businesses must invest in regular audits and system upgrade. Companies that don’t have a VDR with a cybersecurity program in place risk serious financial losses and data breaches.
