INTRODUCTION

In the modern digital era, where businesses experience constant and persistent attacks on their information technology infrastructure from malicious and criminal third parties, data security must be a vital part of any enterprise security strategy. The attachment of substantial financial consequences for security breaches and data loss by regulatory agencies only increases that urgency. Businesses are expected to take every security step possible to ensure the integrity of any and all collected, stored, and processed data.
