We’ve got clearer rules around data protection and we’re spending more money than ever on preventing breaches,* so it’s logical to expect the number of reported incidents would at least plateau or, in an ideal world, decline.
However, we all know that isn’t what we’re experiencing. In fact, the most recent statistics published in The Breach Level Index show that there were as many records breached in the first six months of 2017 as there were in the whole of 2016.
Backing up the idea that buying information security tech alone won’t solve this issue, further analysis of the Breach Level Index shows that 86% of breached records were directly caused by accidental loss as a result of human error or employee negligence.
During this webinar the speakers will share strategies for understanding user behaviour and look at how technology can work effectively with staff to provide a combined approach to tackling the insider threat, covering:
•Analysis of the latest statistics to evaluate the threat your staff present to sensitive data
•The psychology behind the insider threat, how people behave when handling sensitive data and their responses to data breaches, using real human error data breach examples
•The level of reliance placed on pure technology to combat data breaches, compared with a blended approach focused on securing the user and their behaviour
•Steps that can be taken to embed data protection into organisational culture in a way that’s meaningful for both staff and the wider business
•Examine the insider threat from IT and Compliance’s viewpoint to discuss the real challenges you face
