Data leaks are a serious problem for organizations everywhere and stealing very sensitive information is, all too often, as easy as copying data to a USB thumb drive and walking out the door.
Intentional theft is just one aspect of the problem, however. Far more often, innocent and well-meaning employees lose very sensitive data stored on a laptop hard drive, a mobile phone or device, or a CD-ROM, which can be a very embarrassing and costly mistake for your organization. News stories
of companies and organizations that have compromised customers’ credit card data, private health records, or classified government information, are far too common.
Whether it’s a lost laptop (left in a taxi cab) or human error (posting sensitive data on a public Web site), the consequences of data leaks can be devastating for everyone involved. Naturally, you don’t want your organization to be the next big story — which is why you’re reading this book!
