Protecting from data loss
Financial Services company
The challenge. A publicly traded company wants to ensure that its financial statements are kept secure within the company until it’s publicly released through proper channels. They’re currently not confident in how their data is handled.
The solution. Shortly after deploying the insider threat solution, the company identified several risks. Quarterly reports and business plans for the coming year were transferred to USB storage devices. In addition, software code (intellectual property or IP) was stored locally on laptops. If these USB storage devices or laptops were lost, the company would lose the data and control over who can access it.
Benefits. The company’s management team is assured that not just their financial statements are secure, but also their IP and their reputation. By implementing policies, employees adopt better data protection practices and sensitive data doesn’t get into the wrong hands.
