Why is Loose Media So Important?
OEMs and Corporations know that all United States federal agencies are moving to a Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) and NIST Cybersecurity Framework. As you’re surely aware, there are two main threats to your data: Malware and the Insider Threat. In the second step of the ZTA process, these regulations challenge you to ask to explore the vulnerabilities of your dataflows. What does this mean in English? Essentially, people understand how to keep data in transit nice and secure. However, organizations drop the ball when they no longer need the hard drive or other media device due to attrition or failure. Often, those drives are simply piled up someplace insecure. That is what we mean by “loose media.” Because organizations do not closely track or monitor loose media, It is easy for it to fall through the cracks. So we ask, “Do you know where your data goes at night”?
Highest Risk to Data
When is data at its highest risk? It is when data bearing devices are disconnected from the ZTA and NIST compliant monitoring system during the technology end of life (EoL) stage. Check out this blog to find out more detail on how insider threats can access this information!
Are Your Current End of Life Processes NIST and ZTA Compliant?
The old ITAD model in the United States is not compliant with current Risk Management per NIST and NSA requirements. It is up for you to choose your qualified vendors.
