The Hacker in Your Office
It is rarely high tech hackers in dark basements surrounded by high end computer systems that cause an organization to lose data. In fact most data loss occurs due to the actions of the people in the office. Sometimes this is intentional, other times this is accidental, but more often than not it is the person who you visit with at the water cooler who is causing an organization to have a data breach. Understand how this impacts your organizations risk management activities.
