Tier 3 Data Security

Is Your Organization Completely Secure?


When you consider the life-cycle of your organization’s confidential information, you may already know that there are 3 tiers of data security involved in effective management, generation, storage, and decommissioning of devices which data is or has been stored.


Every organization should have a complete data security program to help maintain their overall focus on IT security. Unfortunately a surprising number tend to focus on certain aspects, to the neglect of others. Covering your organization at all 3 tiers of the information life-cycle has always been good practice, but is recently becoming imperative, with resulting fines and penalties growing exponentially when the total security ecosystem is not carefully considered at the beginning of your analysis.


At Resource 1, we have pioneered a process to help organizations easily implement a lasting solution to the problem of understanding each tier of this Information Security ecosystem. It is centered around the 3 tiers of security, with Resource 1 providing highly secure Tier 3 solutions.




Tier 1 Information Security


All safety protocol involved in building a secure enterprise from the ground up, or planning a sizable integration project. This may consist in setting up secure firewalls, assessing every aspect of network vulnerability, password establishment and authentication, and physical security measures.



Tier 2 Information Security


Securely managing live data by integrating threat detection protocol’s, organizational security awareness (NIST 80-100), business continuity planning, data encryption and monitoring, database integrity, efficient and thorough incident response, and effective virus protection.



Tier 3 Information Security


Managing your data at its end-of-life. Too often overlooked, this increasingly critical aspect of data security is becoming imperative to organizational integrity. Securely documenting and destroying retired data-bearing devices is every bit as important as Tier 1 and Tier 2 data protection, and in the wake of growing data theft reports by large public organizations in recent years, this final tier of the security ecosystem is quickly becoming standard protocol.
