VDR for cybersecurity is an essential tool for any business that relies on the secure storage of sensitive information. Even companies who do not share documents with outside parties may have to share confidential data with internal teams or legal counsel. They need to be able to share this information without taking the risk of being a victim of cybertheft.
A good VDR for cybersecurity will include multi-factor authentication, access control mechanisms, and monitoring of file activity in order to identify potential unauthorized activities. It should also include an option that allows administrators to know who has accessed the data and when, which is useful for security investigation. It should also be able encrypt and watermark files to ensure that no one can alter sensitive information.
Some of the suggestions in IEC 61996-1, like the requirement of a key or tool to gain access, limiting access to proprietary software and interfaces and using seals or stickers to signal that tampering is taking place are beneficial. However, they do little to mitigate against the attacks described in this paper, which require access the operating system. The password requirements in this standard only cover the data that is being recorded. They do not apply to the user interface of the device that could be used to bypass the protection.
It is important to remember that the use of a VDR solution for cybersecurity requires a comprehensive approach that starts with the selection of the right solution and encouraging users to adopt it. To ensure the security and privacy of their data, businesses should conduct regular audits and system upgrade. Companies that do not have a VDR implemented for cybersecurity run the risk of serious financial losses and data breaches.
