Bill Blake, President of Fasoo, Inc., spoke to members of the Western NY Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) at the Hilton Double Tree Hotel in Rochester, NY on May 10, 2016. Bill delivered a presentation on “Closing the Threat Gap – A 21st Century Approach to Minimizing Risk” to this annual event and showed attendees how to use Fasoo’s enterprise digital rights management to protect sensitive information from insider threats and external attacks by hackers.
Given the constant barrage of news on data breaches and cyber security incidents, the attendees were very interested in how to protect sensitive information in their organizations, since ensuring proper controls and managing risk are the main focus of this group. One statistic that Bill shared was from the 2016 PwC Global State of Information Security survey which found that 81 percent of respondents attribute security incidents to existing staff, vendors and customers, with current employees the most cited source of incidents. This was an eye opener for many, since most of us tend to focus on external threats.
