So, you don’t know how to classify your data? It’s alright. It’s actually a lot easier than you think. I’ll help you.

You first need to know what kind of data should be classified. Yes, all your data is important. But, some of it is just a little more important.

What do I mean by this? Some data impacts your business a lot more than other data. If it was ever stolen, then your business would be in danger. This is why data classification is so important.

You do need to know which data should be classified, though. Here’s a short list of them:

Restricted Data

Your most sensitive data must be restricted. You don’t want hackers to ever get their hands on this data. If they do, then you’re in for a lot of trouble.

So, you have to classify it as restricted. Only insiders like you can access it.

Private Data

There’s a reason why this type of data is called private. Because it has to stay that way. Your company cannot afford to lose this data. Otherwise, your company’s reputation might go out of the window.

People value their data. And, trust is hard to come by. If you lose it, good luck trying to win it back.

You probably think that it’s not that big of a deal. But, that type of thing can ruin a business. Your company wouldn’t be trustworthy anymore. And, that’s not something that you want.

Public Data

Now, you can breathe a lot easier. Your company won’t really suffer if this data is ever lost. After all, it is called public data for a reason.

Most people will already have access to this data. So, there’s really no reason to protect it.

Alright, you now know what kind of data has to be classified. But, how can you make sure that this data is secure? You have to encrypt it.

BitLocker is by far the best way to encrypt your data. Not only is BitLocker safe and fast, but also easy to use.

BitLocker is also automatic. After the data is read, it is then automatically encrypted by BitLocker. Now, you won’t have to worry about doing the work all on your own.

If you think that BitLocker is hard to manage, think again. With BitTruster, that will never be a problem. BitTruster is fast and really cost effective.

Your time is sacred. It shouldn’t be wasted. Well, that’s not something that BitTruster will ever do. You can manage a lot in a short amount of time.

There you have it. Classifying your data doesn’t have to be hard. BitLocker can help you out in all sorts of ways. Now, all that’s left to do is make it happen!
