Data Security & Privacy: Data Analytics and Data Governance | HCLTech


Rapid cloud expansion has introduced risks beyond those stemming from cybercrime. As a result, the concept of a perimeter-based security strategy no longer makes sense. Instead, organizations need to adopt a dynamic model where digital identity is used as the key method of protecting digital assets regardless of their location or how they are being accessed. Data in the wrong hands has severe implications that impacts the long-term brand reputation of an enterprise.

HCLTech’s modern & scalable solutions help our customers in adopting a centralized system for constant data monitoring and control, while minimizing the risk of sensitive data breaches and infiltration of customer privacy. Therefore, maximizing resiliency by enabling data masking and user authentication at every touchpoint. HCLTech provides 360-degree lifecycle capabilities to deliver a robust data security program that’s tailored for your digitization needs.


HCLTech possesses the right mix of expertise and experience to engage with organizations across the data security and data privacy lifecycle — from strategy through technology selection and process definition to the final deployment and operationalization.
