Workplaces in 2022 are being challenged with an increasingly complex and expanded data landscape where corporate data is growing at an ever-faster speed. In this new landscape, organizations are having to consider their data risk appetite, and determine how to best protect both user privacy and sensitive data for their environment.
Many organizations rely heavily on traditional insider risk tools and strategies dating from the days when employees were situated in office parks and worked with far fewer third-party partners, cloud platforms, and different types of devices. Having a solid data loss prevention strategy in place is key, but it is only one part of the solution to comprehensively addressing potential data risks internally. A strong insider risk management solution should drive better organizational security with a user-centric approach, all while also supporting end-user privacy. This user-centric approach means a better understanding of how data is being created, accessed, and shared.
At the end of the day, data doesn’t move itself; people move data.
