Managing Shadow IT Threats: A Tactical Game Plan For Guarding Against Damaging Data Breaches

Recently, there have been many news stories about damaging data breaches, and the hefty legal fines imposed on those involved. Breaches can harm a company’s reputation and create huge financial burdens. Many breaches can be blamed on the rise of “shadow IT,” or unauthorized software installed by employees on company equipment. Sensitive or proprietary company data is vulnerable and you may not even know there’s a problem.

How do you protect against such data breaches within your organization? Training and implementing proper security protections are essential. Unfortunately, employees who have access to intellectual property (IP) that is vital to the company may have no idea that they have put it at risk. Often data breaches result from carelessness or ignorance on the part of employees.

Depending on how your organization uses cloud hosting applications, you may also need to examine not only how secure your IP is but also what problems could result from a breach.

Nelson, a data privacy and security attorney and certified ethical hacker, and Nick Hogg, a technical training director for a leading global cybersecurity company, will deliver valuable insights on the dangers of shadow IT breaches, and what you can do to guard against the threats you face.
