Not every data breach is caused by external attackers. In fact, most data breaches stem from insider threats. Our research found that in the last two years, insider threats have risen 47%.1 This trend reveals a real and often under-addressed cybersecurity threat. No matter what form it takes, all data loss has something in common--it always involves people.
Now is a critical time to rethink information protection. Organizations often relegate data loss prevention (DLP) products of old to a checkbox on a compliance list. But the middleman approach—intercepting data between the user and the network—hasn’t stopped sensitive data from getting into the wrong hands. The lack of telemetry and actionable alerts bred dangerous blind spots. That’s because the focus stayed firmly on traditional data leakage prevention, authentication and perimeter controls.
