Human-Centric Cybersecurity Protects your Data Everywhere
Many companies are embracing the cloud as part of their digital transformation process. It is a platform that allows companies to scale, collaborate with business partners, capture, collate, analyse and share data to develop new strategies and to serve their customers better.
As more applications are deployed on this platform, data, especially sensitive data, is distributed across devices, PCs, web, cloud and the network. It is only a matter of time before this company is compromised. It can be an external malware attack or through an employee, due to poor cyber hygiene, stolen credentials or malicious employee seeking to harm the business. Employees are often said to be the weakest link in cybersecurity, but when properly educated, they can become the company's strongest first line of defence. The cybersecurity industry has not spent a lot of time thinking about security from a human perspective.
In understanding human behaviour on the network, security teams can quickly identify anomalous behaviour that could otherwise cause of a breach resulting in loss of personal data or critical intellectual property. Forcepoint will talk about the role of human-centric cybersecurity to prevent a breach and mitigate data exfiltration.
