A Global Media Company needed to leverage Data Governance products to discover who was accessing data, where and when.

We deployed a solution that attached metatags to files so administrators could scan network repositories and discover the location of sensitive information, and see how it was being handled.

Your cyber-security is in a constant state of flux. It’s a rapidly changing and diverse marketplace which can make it tough to understand what’s available, where your priorities lie and what will deliver a real benefit to your organisation.

At HANDD we make this extremely complex landscape as simple as possible with our 3-step security strategy – Protect, Detect, Respond.

Every data security solution on the market fits into one of these categories, either protecting, driving detection or responding to threats to your systems and networks.


Prevention is always better than cure when it comes to IT security, however a rise in high-profile attacks and changing regulations, mean that it’s no longer enough. The technological landscape is changing with such speed that whatever you do to prevent an attack, there will always be a threat.

That’s why, even with the best protection in the world, you need systems in place to identify threats as soon as they arise. These systems and processes can make a vast difference when it comes to responding to and remediating threats as efficiently and effectively as possible.


Threats are no longer simply in the form of viruses but encrypted attachments, BYOD policies and data transfers. Finding the right solutions in the war against data loss is essential but, with so many different ways data loss occurs; malicious attacks, rogue users, accidental data loss, hacktivists, malware, viruses, state sponsored attacks, or even industrial espionage, finding the right solution the first time can seem impossible.


Detection has evolved beyond simple anti-virus scanning to scanning encrypted content, analysing big data and spotting red flags in the form of anomalies. Having this data is only the first step in effective detection though. It’s down to your ability to easily access and analyse this data through reports and dashboards to make it meaningful, alerting you to data loss and system abuse earlier so that response times can be faster and the devastation that follows such an attack can be limited.


Responding to an attack is not as simple as just ending the attack and carrying out remedial work to get systems up and running again. Compliance has, over the last few years, become a huge element in how response activities are conducted, making response plans chronically complex.

Specific plans of action to guide you through the correct remedial route, neatly adhering to the lines of compliance can improve response time and damage limitation immensely.

Whatever point you are at in the cyber security Protect, Detect, Respond cycle, HANDD’s data protection specialists live and breathe the Protect, Detect and Respond cycle and are at the end of a phone 24 hours a day. Whilst our independent status gives us the freedom and flexibility to help you find the right course as we guide you through this complex and changing landscape.
