Developing a human-centric policy to security is needed now more than ever.
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) February 24, 2020
RSA Conference, Moscone Center--Teramind Inc., a leading global provider of employee monitoring, insider threat, and data loss prevention (“DLP”) solutions, is leading the industry charge to focus on the human element of security at this year’s RSA Conference. Teramind takes a privacy-first approach that helps set both corporate cultural standards for transparency in monitoring as well as insider threat prevention and detection to help keep organizations compliant in securing their internal, proprietary, and customer data. To help both large enterprises and mid-sized companies have access to the platform, Teramind also announced a new focus in 2020 to scale its partner program with the channel, MSPs, and VARs.
“Developing a human-centric policy to security is needed now more than ever. At Teramind, we’ve found our privacy-focused policies help make it more approachable to our users and, in turn, propel its success. As our friends at RSA say, ‘it’s about protecting people,’” commented Isaac Kohen, VP of R&D at Teramind.
Balancing The Human Element of Insider Threat Prevention & Detection with Concern for Privacy
Kohen further details his company’s perspective on the importance of taking a privacy-first approach in the recent article, “The Human Elements of Cybersecurity: Privacy, Ethics, Usability, and Responsibility (https://wp.me/p9Ajau-1fT).” According to Kohen, information security professionals often interpret the human component of IT as “human fallibility,” the weakest link in a company’s data security apparatus. In many cases, cybersecurity incidents are enabled by human error, malicious intent, or ignorance. In fact, according to a recent industry study, human error is the leading cause of 95% of cybersecurity breaches.
“While it makes sense that the industry is increasingly investing in technologies, strategies, and standards that minimize these human risks, it’s equally crucial that we also look from the other side of the human equation: the users we are supposed to guard. Humans aren’t just resources that you can force to comply with security best practices. An effective security strategy will need to address these human elements,” said Kohen.
