Data Privacy Week 2024: Why Data Privacy Matters

Your data is valuable. Even if you disagree, many organizations and groups will pay top dollar for it, and they don’t all have your best interests in mind. But you have the power to take charge of your data. This is why DataLocker is excited to be an official Champion of #DataPrivacyWeek and celebrate the second-ever Data Privacy Week!

As we observe Data Privacy Week, it’s essential to take a moment to reflect on the importance of protecting our personal and business information. In today’s digital age, we share more personal data than ever through work, social media, online shopping, or smartphones. But with this increased sharing comes an increased risk of data breaches and identity theft.

Personal customer information (such as name, email, and password) is included in 44% of data breaches. (IBM)

Your online activity creates a treasure trove of data. This data ranges from your interests and purchases to your online behaviors, and it is collected by websites, apps, devices, services, and companies all around the globe. This data can even include information about your physical self, like health data – think about how an app on your phone might count how many steps you take. 

You cannot control how each little piece of data about you and your family is collected. However, you still have a right to data privacy. You can help manage your data with a few repeatable behaviors. Your data is valuable, and you deserve to have a say!

It’s more important than ever to protect your sensitive information. One of the most effective ways to do this is using a reputable solution like DataLocker. Our award-winning product line includes everything from encrypted hardware and cloud storage to remote device management. Our technology is used by two-thirds of Fortune 100 companies and security and military agencies at the highest levels of the Federal Government, all the while helping these organizations stay compliant with stringent regulations. 

PROTECT YOUR DATA

Data privacy and data security go hand-in-hand. Along with managing your data privacy settings, DataLocker’s cybersecurity offerings deliver straightforward methods for ensuring data security.

SafeConsole Central Management Software

  •  Password Protection: DataLocker’s SafeConsole central management platform allows IT teams to easily manage and secure many devices and endpoints. This platform provides a simple, intelligent way to provision, secure, manage, and audit encrypted USB drives, ports, and virtual drives.  SafeConsole allows you to set up password protection for USB devices and virtual drives, ensuring that only authorized users can access sensitive data. The platform also provides options for logging and alerting so you can keep track of who is accessing your data and when. Depending on the chosen tier, SafeConsole supports Single Sign-On (SSO), allowing users to use a single login credentials across multiple systems, improving security and ease of use.
  • Multifactor authentication (MFA): SafeConsole also supports multifactor authentication, which adds a layer of security to the login process. This feature allows you to require users to provide a second form of verification in addition to their passwords, such as a fingerprint or a one-time code sent to their phone. This helps to ensure that only authorized users can access your data.
  • Automatic device, software, and browser updates: SafeConsole allows IT professionals to automate updating the firmware and software on the devices and endpoints managed through the platform. This feature ensures that all devices are running the latest software and firmware version, which helps to fix security vulnerabilities and improve performance. It also allows you to schedule updates at specific times so they don’t interfere with business operations.

Encrypted USB Flash and Hard Drives

Our various encrypted storage devices, such as the DL4 FE, Sentry K350, Sentry One, and Sentry 5 provide full disk encryption, meaning that all data stored on the device is unreadable and encrypted without the proper decryption key. If the device is lost or stolen, its data remains protected.

Additionally, it offers hardware-based encryption, ensuring that the encryption keys are stored on the device and not on the host computer. This means that even if a hacker manages to access the host computer, they can only access the data on the encryption device with the proper decryption key.  With SafeConsole’s remote management capabilities, IT professionals can manage and monitor the devices from a central location, remotely wiping them if they are lost or stolen.

Our solutions allow you to control who has access to your data. You can set permission levels for different users to ensure that only those you trust can access your sensitive information. This is especially important for businesses, as it allows them to ensure that only authorized employees have access to sensitive company data.

At DataLocker, we take data privacy seriously. We are committed to protecting your personal information and giving you control over who has access to it. Using our SafeConsole platform and encrypted devices, you can be confident that your data is safe and secure, even in today’s increasingly digital world.

So, if you’re looking for a way to protect your personal information and keep your data safe, consider DataLocker’s state-of-the-art cybersecurity solutions. We’re here to help you take control of your privacy and keep your data secure.
