Monitoring is considered one of the most effective techniques in the ongoing struggle to protect critical information from unauthorized disclosure. Monitoring can effective in logical form such as server log or network traffic analysis or through physical tools such as security guards and video cameras. Monitoring can not only be effective in deterring data compromise but can also serve as valuable tools during a security incident investigation. This presentation will address common, time-tested monitoring guidelines to help protect your enterprise’s data against theft.
Just as malware exists on the Internet we live in an imperfect, sinful world and need to be constantly diligent in identifying telltale signs when we are tempted to act against our conscience or against the moral benefit of others. Security experts must be able to identify valid and malicious traffic to protect data during its lifetime so we also must monitor ourselves to ensure that we act in a manner that avoids sin and glorifies God in our lifetimes.
