Combating the Insider Risk to Data

Combating the Insider Risk to Data While external threats to corporate data have made headlines, an even greater threat is posed by company employees. Sometimes, employees accidently expose sensitive data to the public by losing valuable data stored on a USB drive or laptop that is lost or stolen. At other times, disgruntled laid-off employees may steal company records or intellectual property for financial gain.

Most companies today don't have a complete grasp of what data needs protection. And to take it a step further, they also don't know where it resides, who is accessing it, when it is accessed, and how it is accessed. Protecting your vital information requires new technologies, stronger policies, and user education.
