Most businesses will say that protecting the intellectual property (IP) is every employee’s responsibility.
But, it might just be that those employees are the biggest threat to the security.
It might be simple incompetence, carelessness or a lack of awareness. Cybercriminals exploit their ability to compromise poorly-trained users who click links and open attachments in emails without considering the potential consequences.
Or, it might be poorly-managed security. Access controls might exist, but are they used or enforced?
Even the biggest and, one would think, most savvy of company’s can find themselves with problems.
In early 2018, an Apple iOS source code was posted online to GitHub, a web-based hosting service.
The source code would allow those who understood it to manipulate the iOS to make iPhone jailbreaks easier and potentially discover vulnerabilities more easily.
The link appeared when an intern shared the code with five friends who were active in iPhone jailbreak groups.
The breach could easily have been prevented by Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention (DLP), which enables an organisation to follow its data across networks and devices—both at rest and in use.
It also helps to create and enforce policies that provision the access and movement of data to prevent data breaches and help ensure compliance.
Forcepoint is transforming cybersecurity by focusing on what matters most: understanding people’s intent as they interact with critical data and intellectual property wherever it resides.
Uncompromising systems enable companies to empower employees with unobstructed access to confidential data while protecting intellectual property and simplifying compliance.
Utopia Technology work closely with world leaders such as Forcepoint, whose disruptive solutions in technology are improving business security and safety in every area.
