VDR for cybersecurity is a vital tool for any business that relies on the secure storage of sensitive information. Even businesses that don’t share their documents with external partners may have to share confidential information with internal teams or legal counsel. They need to be able do this without risking cybertheft.
A good VDR for cybersecurity will provide access control mechanisms and monitoring of file activity to detect any suspicious activities. It should also have an option that allows administrators to track who has accessed data and when, which is useful for security investigations. It can also encode and watermark files in order to stop tampering with sensitive information.
Some of the measures suggested in IEC 61996-1, such as using a tool or key for access, restricting access proprietary software and interfaces, and using seals or stickers to signal that there is a tampering incident can be helpful. However, they do little to defend against the attacks described in this paper, which require access the operating system. The requirements for passwords in this standard are only applicable to the data that is being recorded. They do not cover the interface accessible to the device which could be used to bypass the security.
It is crucial to keep in mind that a VDR for cybersecurity requires a multifaceted approach, starting with choosing the right solution and fostering the adoption of users. To ensure the security and confidentiality of their data, businesses should invest in regular audits and system upgrades. Companies that do not have a VDR with a cybersecurity program in place face the risk of having serious data breaches and financial losses.
