A data breach is a company’s or organization’s worst nightmare and has the potential to expose a significant amount of your business’, customers’ and employees’ confidential and private information. Additionally, a fine assessed for breach of GDPR could cripple your business.
Many data breaches involve hackers using sophisticated tools to breach security and steal data, but actions of people who are already inside your network represent a major threat as well.
Often, these insider threats – employees, contractors, ex-employees or social engineers – cause data breaches through accidental leaks or negligence that is exploited by an external threat and can be countered by best security practices.
All these insider threats could cause a data breach and expose your organization’s sensitive data. However, there are ways to improve data breach prevention efforts through accountability and best security practices, including:
Assume that your business or organization will be attacked by cybercriminals and prepare for that attack. With a data breach prevention plan in place to deal with insider threats, you are in a position to handle any problems that might arise or prevent an incident from becoming a full-blown data breach that could result in financial loss and damage to your reputation.
