Trend Alert: Internal Data Breech

Internal Data breach is no newsflash as of late, with major companies such as Yahoo, Samsung and even the U.S Department of Justice making headlines. Many people think that it is only larger companies that are in danger or that have the most to lose; this, however, is not true.

Every organization is vulnerable and with increasing compliance laws, the consequences of information leaks are far more extensive. The biggest surprise for many SME’s is that the breach comes from within their company, either from current employees or, more often than not, those who still have access to applications that they should not after termination.

Data breaches occur when there is a weak network security structure within an organization, particularly when it comes to assigning or revoking access and permissions. Two key features of a good structure are transparency (knowing who has access to what) and control (managing who has access to what). This also helps with passing audits and being compliant, which can prevent large fines and even protect your organization’s reputation.

Enterprise Resource Authorization Management (ERAM) allows companies to streamline, automate, and generate on-demand access control reports on both network accounts and file systems. It streamlines and optimizes access control over unstructured data so you can see who has access, who should have access, who owns data and where that sensitive information is being stored. This allows your organization to define what access should look like and ERAM can ensure it is set up correctly from the onset and stays that way.

Do not become a victim of internal data breach. Take control of your structured and unstructured data. Suffer no more from a lack of process and procedures.
