The answer is actually very simple. It is caused by human error! Your employees.
What most companies fail to understand is that over 33% of your data breaches are simply created by employee error. The other 39 % are malicious behavior of disgruntled or terminated employees. While cloud security has both pros and cons, it is important to understand the risks and limitations.
Knowing this, cybercriminals create highly effective data scams that are all too convincing. It only takes a simple curious click in an email, on a website, and/or social media to activate a virus and ultimately cause a breach.
Up until now the answer has been “educate your employees” on your IT policies and then hope they follow them. Do you even know your own company IT policy, and is it being actively enforced? When asked, the majority of employees click the “I have read and agree to button” without even reading it.
Then you have to remember the other 39 % of breaches are malicious employees. What are you doing to prevent them from taking your most sensitive data? Customer contacts, intellectual property, financial data…etc.
Understand the limitations of cloud security and employ a proactive monitoring and management data loss prevention software solution.
The key being “proactive” as most solutions today depend on IT to react to a situation that leaves your company vulnerable.
Armarius software provides an affordable SAAS solution for SMB that allows you to proactively monitor and manage what the employees are doing and what access they have to your most sensitive data.
We can electronically enforce IT policies to prevent employee errors and stop malicious behavior. We can prevent them from downloading data to a USB, sending emails with sensitive data, printing out files, or accessing specific websites.
Our solution is ideal for companies that need to meet regulatory data compliance from HIPPA, SEC, GDRP, SOX, IPC, and more.
Companies are also using our software solution to create assessment reports on who accessed data when they accessed it and what they did with it. This will help the company prevent employee errors and stop malicious behavior.
Remember we are all human so proactively do something about it now!
