The security challenges that the Federal Government faces are the same challenges that any company may face when considering a Portland Oregon Colocation Data Center; to make the lives easier for all of those Oregon network security professionals out there, whose companies are considering moving their servers to the cloud, here are three easy ways to protect data.
If you’ve ever tried to decipher cryptography, you know it’s unreadable, this method of data protection will make any form of data not readable unless the reader is able to somehow convert the data back to what it was, before it’s owner used cryptography to protect it.

The owner of the data must find out who is responsible for protecting their data because, if nobody takes responsibility then the owner must take steps to manually encrypt their data to minimize potential attacks by hackers and limit the effectiveness those hackers might have.
Always Be Proactive With Data Management
Besides encrypting data, the next important element to data protection, that every company who is interested in Portland Oregon Colocation must consider is finding out which people within the company will be having access to that data and then taking proper steps to control any keys that are given out and to limit access to people who have keys.
