Mitigating Security Threats of Insiders Leaking Data
It is increasingly apparent that insiders working carelessly and in ignorance of security concerns are a major source of security breaches in IT. Most data security is a result of a patchwork of systems which may contain gaps and does not protect against malicious insider data theft. The solution to complete data security is provided by a digital rights management system.
- Traditional data security systems are not designed to protect against internal theft and misuse of confidential documents and data.
- More than half the actual data loss of a business may be due to the actions of insiders.
- Personal use of cloud document storage and the proliferation of devices through which data is accessed have raised concern about insider culpability in data security breaches.
- A DRM or digital management system is designed to prevent insider inadvertent and malicious misuse of data.
