Protecting you Company Data from WikiLeaks


Despite all the news surrounding WikiLeaks and the immense amount of data stolen from the US government, little has been written about the organizational processes that contributed to the leaks, how the soldier who stole the data had access to such sensitive data in the first place, and how digital collaboration has increased to the point where these incidents will likely become commonplace unless root causes are identified and addressed.

“Organizations are becoming significantly more collaborative,” said Yaki Faitelson, Chief Executive Officer, President and Co-founder of Varonis. “As a result, data is more widespread and vulnerable than ever before. For organizations to prevent loss of sensitive data while still enabling the collaboration needed to conduct business, they need to ensure that they have processes and automation in place for authorization and review of access to data, monitoring who is using data, and identifying sensitive data that is at risk.” Read more on “Working to Prevent Being the Next WikiLeak?

Blijft helaas onduidelijk waarom BitDefender dit opvallend en vooral ook een beveiligingsrisico vindt.
