VDR for Cybersecurity

VDR for cybersecurity could be a valuable tool for any company that is dependent on the security of sensitive data. Even companies that don’t share documents with external organizations may requirement to share confidential information with internal teams or legal counsel and they must be able to do this without putting themselves at risk of cyber-theft.

A good VDR has multi-factor authentication and access control mechanisms, as well as monitoring the file’s activity to detect any possible unauthorized activities. It should also come with an option that allows administrators to determine who has accessed the data and when. This is useful for security investigation. It should also be able to encrypt and watermark files to ensure that no one can alter sensitive information.

While some of the measures suggested by IEC 61996-1 include the use of an instrument or key to gain access to the device, restricting access to proprietary software and interfaces that are on the device and using seals or stickers to show signs of tampering are beneficial, they do not mitigate against many of the attacks illustrated in this paper that require access to the operating system. The requirements for passwords in this standard are only applicable to the data being recorded. They do not cover access to the interface of the device, which could be exploited to evade the security.

It is essential to keep in mind that a VDR solution for cybersecurity requires a comprehensive approach that starts with the choice of the best solution and encouraging users to adopt it. To ensure the security and confidentiality of their data, companies should invest in regular audits and system upgrade. If the VDR for cybersecurity is not in place, companies are at risk of data breaches that could lead to serious financial penalties.
