What is security management?

While running a business, you have several stakeholders to manage different verticals. A well-managed business would have various departments, which will be headed by different individuals and will be accountable for the work confined to a particular vertical. In such scenarios, data leakage is quite common as the access to company data would be provided at different levels, varying on the dependencies. It’s extremely crucial that stringent security measures are taken to prevent data spillage within as well as outside of the organisation. Thus, encrypting the data, providing layers of security and limiting access, all of these come under security management.

Features which are widely used to secure the data in Tally:
