Securing What You Share: Improving Your Third Party Security

Biography

When organizations start working with third-party vendors, they have to consider a variety of security concerns. These vendors often have access to valuable, sensitive corporate data, yet according to a 2016 study by the Ponemon Institute, more than one third of companies don’t believe these vendors would tell them if they had a data breach. Additionally, About 60% of respondents said they felt vulnerable because they were sharing sensitive data with third parties that might have weak security policies. While including data privacy and security procedures in third-party contracts to ensure vendors have appropriate measures in place to protect company data has become commonplace, it is difficult to evaluate how the vendor is protecting data from unauthorized access, use, and disclosure, and to know whether the vendor has appropriate contractual terms in place with downstream, who may also have access to your data. This disconnect creates a high-risk area for all industries as more and more data loss through third-party vendors results in a breakdown of trust and communication. To help prevent potential damages, organizations need to develop plans for working with third parties that involve data mapping vendors, contract specificity, and regular data audits.

The Internet of Things is Here and Growing but are You Ready for it?

Biography

The once nebulous Internet of Things has slowly but surely become a more defined and pressing issue for Information Security professionals as more organizations begin to adopt the IoT into their business structure. Gartner predicts that in the year 2020, 25 billion ‘things’ worldwide are connected to the internet with a collective economic value of two trillion dollar. While that still leaves current InfoSec professionals some time to adapt to a more pervasive Internet of Things, the question remains; “How ready is your organization for IoT adoption now?” Does your organization have the right skillsets and capabilities in place now to start investing in IoT related projects? Aside from all the innovative, technical and business skills needed, perhaps the greatest skill needed is the ability to understand what missing factors are in the organization’s capabilities.

Security from the Inside: Combating Insider Threats

Biography

While the popular view of most security threats tends to be of outsiders, the last few years have also seen an increasing emphasis on threats to the enterprise from the inside. Insider threats can range from something as simple as a negligent employee who clicks on a bad email link to a disgruntled employee with privileged access to sensitive data and portions of the enterprise. A 2016 survey on insider threats by Bitglass revealed that one in three organizations interviewed had experienced insider attacks, with 56% saying they have gone up in the past year. Organizations are starting to see improvements in detecting insider threats however. In the same survey, 64% of the respondents said they can now detect breaches within a week, compared to the previous year where only 42% were able to do so. While there have been some improvements in dealing insider threats, there still remains a strong need for a more vigilant and proactive approach to identifying, isolating, and mitigating damage from these kinds of attacks.
