Identify the most important information and applications, where that information resides, and who has or may need access to it. This enables you to understand which areas of your business’ security program are most vulnerable to attack. Get a deeper, comprehensive understanding of your corporate vulnerabilities by downloading this white paper.
The 2013 Snowden case, when an NSA contractor leaked classified information to the public, is an excellent example of malicious attacks from within. More recently, UK-based software provider Sage Group experienced a breach when an employee used an internal login without authorization. Whether they’re intentional or accidental, insider threats are even more prevalent than outsider threats. Organizations have failed to understand the importance of internal threats for far too long, and this risk will only increase if it isn’t immediately addressed.
Organizations are increasingly turning to cloud computing providers because of several potential advantages, including significantly less initial investment, fewer skilled internal IT resources, and lower operating costs. However, for all the intended benefits, cloud services raise security risks and regulatory challenges because personal information and intellectual property can cross borders. Since not every country has stringent rules around information protection, security, and privacy, adhering to the regulations that come with cloud computing services can be daunting. Additionally, there are some concerns regarding the core security practices that cloud providers follow.
