Compliance Solutions for Chief Information Security Officers

By: Hisoftware  09-12-2011

You know that the sensitive data residing in your information systems presents a risk, and that the risk is more than a hacker penetrating your firewall. However, given that more than 80% of enterprise content is unstructured, growing at a rate of 36% per year, qualifying that level of the risk — never mind protecting against a potential breach — can seem impossible.

Employees are demanding access to collaborative tools like SharePoint®, but the associated communication and productivity benefits come with new challenges for your privacy, compliance and technology teams. Also, precisely what makes these systems such a boon to your workforce — the ease with which employees can create, publish and share content—is also the root cause of the explosion of unstructured data in your information systems. Without a proven solution for monitoring and securing the use of internal content platforms, Google docs and other free tools completely outside your control can be easily substituted by an increasingly savvy workforce, creating the perfect scenario for a breach.
