People Lose Data

People Lose Data

Data loss is inherently a people problem. A careless individual, compromised account, or malicious insider is almost always involved. Ensuring data privacy and preventing intellectual property theft require more than legacy data loss prevention (DLP) solutions, they require a people-centric approach. Monitoring data movement is just a start. Before we can successfully defend sensitive data, we need visibility into user behavior and external threats associated with data loss. Only then, with a better understanding of user intent, can security teams effectively automate response. 

Join our three-part series of 30-minute webinars, People Lose Data, and learn how to develop a comprehensive and people-centric DLP program.


Webinar Series - Part 1

Prevent Data Loss by Careless Employees

In today’s work from anywhere and everywhere world, you need a modern approach to data loss prevention. Careless knowledge workers pose a significant compliance risk to organizations. They may expose sensitive data in cloud applications. They may download sensitive information onto their personal devices. They may use unsanctioned tools for collaboration. These all make it harder to secure data and ensure compliance with privacy regulations. So how can you better secure your regulated data, intellectual property and other business-critical information?

Join this 30-minute webinar, the first in our three-part People Lose Data series, to learn about:

  • How employees accidentally lose or expose data
  • Modern approach to information protection
  • Best practices and tools to protect more data with less effort

Webinar Series - Part 2

Prevent Data Loss by Departing Employees

Employee turnover has been – and will continue to be - a major driver of insider threats. Whether employees leave voluntarily or involuntarily, they often feel entitled to the intellectual property that they helped create and may want a head start in their next opportunity. In fact, according to the 2023 Proofpoint State of the Phish Report, 1 out of every 4 users switched jobs in the past two years. Of those who left, 44% took data with them. So, how can your organization protect its most valuable data from walking out the door with departing employees?

Join this 30-minute webinar and demo, the second in our three-part series People Lose Data, to learn about:

  • How employee turnover increases the risk of insider threats
  • Lessons learned from real-life examples of data loss due to departing employees
  • Best practices and tools to protect data and accelerate insider investigations

Webinar Series - Part 3

Prevent Data Loss by Compromised Employees

Remote workers using cloud apps with access to sensitive information can be easy targets for threat actors. With many enterprise systems now accessible through a single set of cloud credentials, a substantial amount of risk has opened up. Proofpoint data shows that 63% of cloud tenants were compromised in 2021. In an attacker’s hands, an account could be used to grant persistent access to malicious applications, manipulate and potentially exfiltrate sensitive data and files, and even commit malicious code to shared repositories.

Join this 30-minute webinar, the third in a three-part People Lose Data series, to learn:

  • Tactics used by threat actors to compromise cloud accounts
  • How to analyze threat intelligence to identify compromised users and risks to data
  • Best practices and tools to protect your sensitive data
