SENSITIVE DATA

Know Your Enemy. Know Your Risk.

Threat actors can target you based on a number of factors, including how sensitive your data is, how much that data is worth financially, and how easy a target you are vs your industry peers. Learn what it takes to build a sensitive data security plan that protects your customers and your business.

Protect your most sensitive data.

The more sensitive the data, the higher the probability that hackers will attack it. It is not just a question of financial gain. Hackers enjoy the challenge, status and fun that comes from breaking into your most sensitive data. “Know your enemy” is one of the oldest military strategies. To understand how to protect against a sensitive data breach, you must go inside the mind of a hacker. You should be able to answer these questions from a hacker’s perspective and use this information to build your sensitive data security program:

  • What is the data worth from a social perspective?
  • What is the data worth from a financial perspective?
  • What is the ease of obtaining the data?
  • What is the risk of being caught?
  • What are the consequences of being caught?

You should also consider how prepared your organization is relative to your peers when it comes to protecting against sensitive data theft and the probability of your perimeter defenses being bypassed by hackers. Our 24/7 threat hunters know a hacker does not need to be an expert to execute a successful cyber attack. With the fluidity that people share their personal information online today, it makes it easy for hackers to attack.

It is also easy to think your company’s data is not a target but no organization is immune from a data breach. However, large enterprises seemingly have endless resources, lobbyists, insurance policies, and other structures that have been put in place over time to make data security breaches more manageable.

Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are faced with an ultimatum: evolve or perish. We found that 58% of SMBs had a sensitive data breach in the last year, and have paid $1.43 million as an average cost of the damage or theft of IT assets due to a sensitive data breach.

  • The probability of sensitive data theft and financial risk involved
