DATA UNDER ATTACK: 2018 Global Data Risk Report
41% of organizations have at least 1,000 sensitive files open to all employees
This week, we talk about our annual data risk assessment report and sensitive files open to every employee! 41% of companies are vulnerable. The latest finding put organizations at risk as unsecure folders give attackers easy access to business roadmaps, intellectual property, financial and health data, and more. We even discussed how data open to everyone in an organization relates to user-generated data shared with 3rd party apps. Is it a data security or privacy problem? At the very least, pa ...

Dr. Wolter Pieters on Information Ethics, Part One
In part one of my interview with TU Delft’s assistant professor of cyber risk, Dr. Wolter Pieters, we learn fundamentals of ethics as it relates to new technology, starting with the trolley problem. A thought experiment on ethics, it’s an important lesson in the world of self-driving cars and the course of action the computer on wheels would have to take when faced with potential life threatening consequences. Wolter also takes us through a thought track on the potential of power im ...
I’m Elena Khasanova, Professional Services Manager at Varonis, and This is How I Work

GDPR Requirements in Plain English
You just want to answer the question: “What do I need to do for GDPR?”Maybe you’ve worked your way through a few online quizzes to test for GDPR readiness or skimmed an article that made some vague suggestions.You might even have attempted to read the source European Parliament on General Data Protection Regulation 4.5.2016 L 119/1 only to find that the human nervous system was designed to violently reject exposure to such dense legalese.Which is why we’ve translated every chapter and ar ...
Are Users and Third-Party Vendors Frenemies?
In the midst of our nationwide debate on social media companies limiting third party apps’ access to user data, let’s not forget that companies have been publicly declaring who collects our data and what they do with it. Why? These companies have been preparing for GDPR, the new EU General Data Protection Regulation as it will go into effect on May 25th. This new EU law is a way to give consumers certain rights over their data while also placing security obligations on companies hol ...
Details Matter in Breaches and in Business
With one sensational data breach headline after another, we decided to take on the details behind the story because a concentrated focus on the headline tends to reveal only a partial dimension of the truth. For instance, when a bank’s sensitive data is compromised, it depends on how as well as the what. Security practitioner Mike Buckbee said, “It’s very different if your central data storage was taken versus a Dropbox where you let 3rd party vendors upload spreadsheets.&rdqu ...
Innovate First, Deliver PSAs Later
Today even if we create a very useful language, IoT device, or software, at some point, we have to go back to fix the security or send out PSAs. Troy Hunt, known for his consumer advocacy work on breaches, understands this very well. He recently delivered a very practical PSA: Don’t tell people to turn off Windows update, just don’t. We also delivered a few PSAs of our own: cybercriminals viewour linkedin profiles to deliver more targeted phish emails, whether we’d prefer to ...
Security Alert Woes
IT pros could use a little break from security alerts. They get a lot of alerts. All. The. Time. While alerts are important, a barrage of them can potentially be a liability. It can cause miscommunication, creating over reactivity. Conversely, alerts can turn into white noise, resulting in apathy. Hence the adage: if everything is important, nothing is. Instead, should we be proactive about our security risks rather than reactive? Articles discussed: Heatmap reveals secret military bases ...
