More Data and Unlimited Access to Services Equals Increased Business Risk

How much data do you store? Do you even know? For many companies, the amount of data they store is more considerable than they have also been, and we keep saving more. However, worse than that is the fact that we must secure it.  Securing it is hard due to the number of devices we are attaching to our networks, many of which we do not have control over like IoT devices – many of which are not capable of being patched or secured down to employee-owned devices. Then we allow all types of third party services unlimited access to this treasure trove of proprietary intellectual and personally identifiable data. With vast stores and wide-open access, it is no wonder that malicious insiders and sophisticated cybercriminals are putting them in their crosshairs.
