Welcome to the first installment of the DataMotion 2021 Year-end Hot List! As we close out 2021 and gear up for 2022, we’re revisiting the year in the DataMotion Blog. In this blog post, we are showcasing the different series that we’ve published to the blog this year. This includes a look at where data security vulnerabilities may lie within your organization on both the IT and business sides, the rise of Ransomware as a Service, and some tips and tricks for using Postman.

Let’s set the rearview mirror and start our look back at 2021 in the DataMotion Blog.

Series You May Have Missed

The Danger for Data Series

“While not every breach will make front page headlines or the 24-hour cable news cycle, organizations should expect a breach at some point and plan a defensive strategy. As I mentioned in the previous installment of this series, it is not a question of if a breach will occur, but rather, where and when.” DataMotion CEO Bob Janacek offers insights into where vulnerabilities may lie on both the IT and business sides of an organization, and how you can protect your enterprise’s data.

Ransomware as a Service (RaaS) is a dangerous cottage industry that has upped the ante when it comes to keeping your data secure. DataMotion Developer Advocate Heather Post explored this dark side to innovation in a three-part series, where she outlined the basics of this disastrous digital disruption, how your vendor could unintentionally put your organization’s data at risk, and how you can protect your enterprise.

We’re Partial to Postman
