InfoWatch, a global market leader in DLP solutions, is taking part of this year's
IDC CIO Summit in Dubai, where it will share key industry insight into internal
data security in the region, following a regional survey aimed at measuring how
securely protected internal sensitive data for regional companies is and how confident
managers are in their organization's own internal security solutions.
The survey, covering multiple sectors including Banks and Financial Institutes,
Education, Healthcare, IT and Government, reveals that 77.6% of IT and Information
Security managers reported that the main threats to their businesses stem internally,
including internal leaks or criminal behaviour, while 20% believe the greatest threats
are external (targeted attacks, viruses, DDos...etc).
Natalya Kaspersky, CEO at InfoWatch Group of Companies and Kaspersky Lab co-founder
«The results of the survey underline the importance of internal security. Companies
now need to look beyond external attacks and focus on protecting sensitive and confidential
data from internal leaks, whether intentional or otherwise. Our participation in
the IDC CIO Summit in Dubai is a perfect opportunity for us to meet the top technology
executives and companies from around the region and help raise awareness about data
The survey also revealed that the most common form of data leaked is personal data
across all sectors (50% - 80% across all sectors except Manufacturing and Transport).
Other instances of abuse include leaking of commercial secrets, access abuse and
«Leakage of personal data is disastrous, – added Natalya. For Government and Financial
institutes, this means compromising confidential data that could lead to all sorts
of issues like identity theft and major financial losses».
In addition to survey, InfoWatch will showcase the next iteration of the InfoWatch
Traffic Monitor Enterprise 5.0. This updated version includes a new user friendly
web interface allowing cross-platform remote access. Additionally, multiple units
within the company (like HR, Legal, Marketing, etc.) will now have varied level
of access that will allow them to be more involved in securing internal data.
