Protecting data from departing employees and third parties

On an annual basis, the Certinia security team conducts an executive information security risk assessment to align team priorities with business objectives and identify the most pressing risks in the organization. Based on this assessment, Aaron Momin, CSO at Certinia (previously known as FinancialForce), determined that data leaking by departing employees, to competitors or to third parties was a significant security risk with the potential to cause major business impact. The security team needed to deploy and integrate the right technology and establish repeatable workflows to mitigate insider risk in these high-risk situations.


The need for speed & reducing alert fatigue

To effectively protect data from insider risk, and meet executive expectations, Certinia needed the ability to quickly detect and respond when critical insider risk events occur. To save them time, and decrease alert fatigue, Momin knew they needed a solution that could prioritize the risk that matters most and provide flexible ways to automate response. “For our security team, speed to response is critical. It’s not about boiling the ocean, but mitigating the top risks against the company — and prioritizing our efforts,” says Momin.
