A Data Security Survival Guide in an Interconnected World

As the number of internet-connected devices skyrockets into the billions, a data security strategy is an increasingly important part of any organization’s ability to manage and protect critical information. Enterprises are migrating to the cloud in droves, however, protecting data in the cloud remains a challenge as employees push to access cloud apps from any device, anywhere. In the last year alone, 1 in 3 organizations were hacked more than 5 times, and with the increased number of attacks the financial cost of security incidents is also rising. In many cases, breaches are caused by a combination of benevolent insiders, targeted attacks, and malicious insiders. For example, targeted attacks are often enabled inadvertently by well-meaning insiders who fail to comply with data or security policies, which can lead to a data breach.
