Sensitive Files in International Deals

Sensitive files in international deals are becoming a major concern for corporate executives. These files, often categorized as hypersensitive as they are the crown jewels of a company and pose heightened risk if exposed in the wrong hands. Cybercriminals can target any sensitive file that contains financial data, personal information or sensitive files in international deals trade secrets.

The loss, misuse or unauthorized access to sensitive information could negatively impact the national security, the conduct of federal programs or the privacy rights to which individuals are entitled under the Privacy Act. Check out controlled non-classified data (CUI).

Moderate sensitivity information is information that has a legal obligation to guard but the leakage of this information will only cause small harm to those and organizations that are affected. Examples include building plans information such as individual donor records, intellectual property information, IT service information, visa and other travel documents, and security information.

A business that is globally-based needs to identify which of its data falls within the PHI of HIPAA or PI under GDPR and ensure it’s stored and transferred efficiently.
