In the technological world there are attacks on computer systems, companies and networks technology dependent, better known as cyber-attacks. The people behind this attacks use malicious codes to alter the code, the logic or the computer data, to generate harmful consequences that can compromise sensitive data.
The question is: Do you really know what are the consequences of leakage and / or theft of sensitive data in an organization?
Next, we will mention 4 important problems that are generated because of a cyber-attack:
1.- BUSINESS INTERRUPTION:
Imagine your entity suspended for hours and your customers or users are unable to connect and perform regular transactions.
2.- FINANCIAL LOSSES:
If your customers can not access your website to make purchases, or if we talk about banks not being able to transfer money or make payments, are you aware of the profit that is no longer registered within the organization?
In a large company like IBM we could be talking about millions of dollars in losses.
Once it's known publicly that an entity was violated, exposing sensitive data, it creates distrust in its clients immediately . Which not only affects the image of the company but also its business partners.
4.- LEGAL PROCESSES
Unquestionably, if there were customers affected in this attack, the company will be involved in legal fines since the entity was not able to safeguard such sensitive information.
To avoid this type of problem, organizations must develop technological improvements and tests in their environment that allow them to identify and optimize their vulnerable points. However, these tests can provoke exposure of the data.
That is why EXSYSTEM’S DATA MASKING tool is designed to protect sensitive data when it comes to testing and improving computer systems.
EXSYSTEM’S DATA MASKING tool not only delivers fictitious and consistent data to test environments, it also protects the original data, storing it in a completely robust cryptographic vault.
