Code42 takes is a risk-based approach to data protection rooted in transparency, training and technology.

The current state of data protection

The workforce is changing faster than ever as we’ve entered a new era of work. At the same time, businesses need to be more agile, more innovative and faster-adapting, driving major digital transformations internally. These revolutionary workforce and technology dynamics introduce immense challenges for security and risk professionals – especially when it comes to data protection, governance and compliance (GRC) and Enterprise Risk Management (ERM).

5 reasons why a new approach to DLP is needed

  1. Employee collaboration encourages file sharing inside and outside the organization.
  1. Remote work hampers visibility to files moving off-network and onto unmanaged devices.
  1. Employees use the tools they need to be productive, causing files to move to unsanctioned cloud services and storage.
  1. Departing employees take sensitive files out of the organization.
  1. Blocking file movement is a less efficient and effective data protection control.

The increased movement to cloud, to collaboration technologies and to remote work has accelerated data protection challenges – specifically the exposure and exfiltration of sensitive data. This is Insider Risk.
