Companies across the globe face security and data protection challenges every day. Most invest in technologies to keep cyber criminals from getting into their network and pretty much stop there, which seems sensible until you take a step back and look at Verizon’s 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR). The DBIR reveals that “insider and privilege misuse accounted for 15 percent of breaches across all patterns analyzed.” That’s a statistically significant percentage and, as expected, data breach prevention is becoming a big focus for corporate leaders.
Information technology and security leaders are looking for databases that permit data access for everyone who needs it. Traditional access controls often allow a select few, typically administrators and certain key associates, to access proprietary corporate and customer data. Conversely, a lack of adequate access controls gives all or most associates rights to this same data without appropriate administrative granularity. Neither scenario proves ideal. The former prevents or severely limits many associates from accessing data necessary to perform their job, while the latter method provides too much access and exposes the company to excessive data risks.
Hospitals know the dangers all too well, particularly when staff members access the medical records of celebrities or other prominent people and the breach is leaked to the media. That type of negative PR can damage a facility’s reputation in the eyes of current and future patients. On the other hand, if a hospital staff member falls for a spear-phishing or ransomware campaign and clicks on a malicious link, vital hospital records can be at risk of public exposure or complete inaccessible to the hospital.
