How to Mitigate Insider Threats with SpinOne Data Audit

Insider threats are the reason for more than 34% of data breach cases. And given that the cost of a data breach is getting higher and higher as the value of data grows, this risk must be taken saeriously by business owners and IT specialists. A data audit is a foundation for strong internal data security. It is crucial for companies to know how to mitigate insider threats and data flow under control to not let any data leak occur and lead to money and trust losses.

How to mitigate insider threats with Data Audit? 

Data auditing techniques and services may differ, but they all should provide you with the following information.

First, a data audit gives you the ability to track who your internal G Suite data is shared with. It can be colleagues, employees from other departments, or even third parties. 

Second, it shows you what permissions have been granted to users and provides you with the ability to manage those permissions. This ensures that data security is in place and makes all the users’ actions trackable and manageable.

Third, you should be able to track if G Suite data is downloaded, especially in high volumes.
