With insider-related fraud up 43% in 2012, clearly traditional security approaches are not working. Data loss prevention (DLP) systems, Internet monitoring tools and other controls are failing to stop a growing number of data breaches linked to insiders

And the costs of these breaches can be staggering. They include everything from legal and remediation expenditures to soft costs such as damage to agency reputation or corporate brand due to exposing customers, consumer or citizen confidential information or private data.

This white paper will cover how organizations become breached— either by internal users through malicious or benign actions or from external threats that acquire the credentials of trusted insiders.It also touches on how organizations can limit privileged users’ access to data so that, in either case, sensitive information does not leave your organization in an unencrypted state. Finally, it shows how organizations can implement technologies to protect data by decrypting at the point of use, and setting rules on who can see unencrypted data.
