Synopsis

One of the most difficult challenges an organisation faces is the theft of critical data by an employee. In recent weeks the issue of trusted individuals stealing or revealing information from an organisation has been brought sharply back into public focus with the revelations from Mark Snowden about the data gathering activities of the US and UK governments. The long-term diplomatic,and political fall-out of this information is still difficult to quantify, but the short-term impact has been significant.

The impact on business of losing critical information is equally significant. The critical assets that a business must protect have a direct monetary value associated with them as they will provide future revenue stream for an organisation. The loss of these assets impacts an organisation from lost sales, decreased competitive advantage, and in some cases, bankruptcy.

This presentation will provide an insight into the lessons our customers, security teams, and law enforcement agencies, have learned about the best techniques to employ to help detect, and more importantly prevent, this type of data breach.
