New Varonis guide offers tips on assessing risk and preventing data leaks
The new Varonis guide, Preventing Data Leaks with Automated Data Governance, outlines how to assess an organization's current risk profile and effectively reduce risk with metadata framework technology.
"Organizations now house all kinds of sensitive information – not only that of the organization itself, but data that belongs or affects its partners, clients, and employees. Metadata is critical in preventing unauthorized or inappropriate access to sensitive data. Governing access and monitoring use of this data is critical for productivity and security, and is now necessary to be a viable business partner," said David Gibson, Director of Strategy for Varonis.
The Varonis guide features research from Gartner's recent “Security and Risk Management Lessons, Courtesy of WikiLeaks” report. According to Gartner analysts, “The wholesale release of sensitive diplomatic cables by WikiLeaks serves as a reminder to organizations of the need to evaluate the benefits and risks of broader data access; the need for data access governance, controls and monitoring; and the need for data and infrastructure protection.”
