Insider threats are defined as people who operate within an organization and work with sensitive information on a daily basis. Insider threats can be malicious and fit into one of three categories:
Identifying the right products is critical for understanding the impacts threats can have. When it comes to the usage of inside information within a corporate environment, confidentiality, integrity, and availability (C.I.A) is important. Confidentiality ensures that information is only accessed by authorized personnel. Integrity, then, ensures that information does not need to be modified and is reliable. Lastly, availability, as the name suggests, ensures that information is readily available when needed. Our data security products help to uphold C.I.A.
We understand the sensitivity around your data and aim to control the usage of the business computers.
What is Data Loss Prevention (DLP)?
Data Loss Prevention (DLP) safeguards against sensitive data being lost, misused, or accessed by unauthorized users. DLP software is a set of tools and processes that classifies regulated, confidential, and business specific data, by identifying violations of policies defined by organizations or a predefined policy pack (e.g., driven by regulatory compliance mandated by HIPAA, PCI-DSS, or GDPR). Once these parameters (violations) are identified, DLP then enacts remediation by utilizing encryption, alerts, and other protective strategies to prevent end users from wittingly or unwittingly sharing data that puts the agency at risk. Data is protected when at rest, in motion, and in use vis a vis data loss prevention software and tools that closely monitor and control endpoint activities, filter data streams on corporate networks, and monitor data in the cloud. Part of this process also includes reports to meet compliance and auditing requirements in order to identify abnormalities and weak points for forensics and incident responses.
Why Data Loss Protection Should be Used:
Problems with personal information protection/compliance, intellectual property (IP), and data visibility are solved with DLP.
Multi Factor Authentication (MFA), sometimes referred to as two-factor authentication or 2FA, is a security enhancement. It permits the presentation of two pieces of evidence (i.e., your credentials) when logging in to an account. Credentials fall into three categories: 1) something you know (e.g., a PIN or a password), 2) something you have (e.g., a smart card), or 3) something you are (e.g., like your fingerprint). Entering two different passwords would not be considered multi-factor because credentials must come from two different categories in order to enhance security.
Generally, most MFA approaches will remember a device so, if one uses the same phone or computer to login, the website will remember your device as the second factor. Between recognizing the device being used as well as analytics, a bank for example, would be the only one who would have to do extra work should you be logging in from a different country.
When should MFA be used?
When it comes to your most sensitive data (i.e., your primary email, financial accounts, health records, etc.) you should use MFA whenever possible. Many organizations offer an MFA as an option you most knowingly turn on, while others require MFA use.
Copyrights for digital media can be protected by digital rights management (DRM). This strategy uses technologies that minimize copying and use of copyrighted works and proprietary software. DRM grants publishers and authors to control what patrons can do with their works. Companies can implement DRM systems in order to help prevent users from accessing or using certain assets, avoiding legal entanglements resulting from unauthorized usage.
DRM technologies do not catch pirates. Rather, DRM makes it impossible to steal or share the content at all.
How Digital Rights Management Works
Generally, DRM’s utilize codes that prohibit the copying of content and limit the time or number of devices on which certain products can be accessed. Content creators (publishers and authors) apply an application to encrypt data, media, content, e-books, software, and other copyrighted material. If one has decryption keys, then they can access the material. Limitations or restrictions can be placed on the material as well.
There are many ways to protect your software, content, or product. DRM allows you to:
Logs of people and the times of use/viewing of media, content, and software is also managed by DRM. For example, a DRM permits the authorized user to see when an e-book was downloaded or printed and who accessed it.
Endpoint management allows designated IT staff to centrally manage and distribute operating systems updates as well as software and application updates. Additionally, it allows for asset inventory, compliance reporting for supported devices, and single administrative console for managing device security policies.
