Every day, more gigabytes of data migrate from business and organizational hard drives into the digital cloud. As this trend unfolds, so does the urgency of keeping all the data secure: Cyber attacks have surged to record-high levels of frequency and scale in recent years, as hackers grow ever bolder and more sophisticated in their thefts of personal medical records, bank transactions, proprietary business files, and other critically sensitive files. Enterprises of all kinds thus face a twin imperative: keeping their data easily accessible and available on the one hand, but ensuring that it is safe from hackers on the other. Many enterprises choose to meet this challenge head-on by implementing “Enterprise Information Management” (EIM) systems that integrate data and optimize how the data is used.
Such a system can be localized to a single internal department within an organization. But many organizations are putting EIM to work system-wide via centralized EIM platforms that manage and secure every department’s information in one common program. The federal government’s IT communities are especially inclined toward centralized EIM platforms such as these, and the cybersecurity factor is a large part of the reason why: These systems offer a level of data security that no conventional shared drive can match.
Certainly, a business can simply store sensitive files on its network in a shared drive that requires users to have a password and official authorization to view them. And many businesses do just that. But restricted-access protocols such as these are not as secure as some business leaders might think: Dedicated hackers can and do find ways to break through them. Consequently, a huge quantity of the information that businesses and government agencies store in their servers is at high risk of being compromised—and shared drives’ built-in safeguards do not by themselves protect it.
Cybersecurity, as such, is a hot topic among chief information officers in government and business. Practically any discussion of enterprise architecture today involves extensive consideration of how to safeguard stored data. And among government CIOs especially, a consensus is emerging: One of the best first steps an agency or business can take is to store the data within an EIM system. These systems, with their content-management features that are uniquely designed to file and store records, offer an exponentially greater degree of protection than one will find in any conventional shared drive.
