Samsung recently made headlines by banning the use of generative AI tools by its employees due to concerns over data security risks. This incident serves as a reminder of the importance of having a DLP (Data Loss Prevention) solution in place to secure sensitive data and prevent data breaches. With the rise of remote and hybrid workforces, organizations are facing new challenges in terms of data protection.
Tech companies and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) alike are vulnerable to data breaches, as they often hold sensitive commercial information and large amounts of consumer data. While tech companies may have more resources to devote to data security, SMEs may have less training and resources available to properly train their staff and implement strong data security measures. The leaking of commercial secrets can result in significant financial losses, and the exposure of consumer sensitive data can damage the trust that customers have in a company. The potential consequences of a data breach highlight the importance of strong data security measures, including DLP solutions. By prioritizing data security, businesses of all sizes can protect their sensitive information and maintain the trust of their customers. Your employees encounter a variety of everyday scenarios that may put your sensitive data at risk. Are you confident that your business is taking the necessary steps to protect its sensitive data in everyday scenarios?
Scenario 1: Remote Working
Imagine one of your employees is working remotely from home and needs to access sensitive company data. They log in to their personal device, but they may not be aware that their device is not as secure as the office network. This scenario is becoming increasingly common with the rise of remote working, but it doesn’t have to be a cause for concern. By implementing DLP (Data Loss Prevention) solutions, businesses can remind their employees to handle the data with care for avoiding accidentally making mistakes that put confidential data at risk.
Scenario 2: Using AI Tools such as ChatGPT
With the increasing use of AI tools in businesses, it’s more important than ever to protect sensitive data that may be generated or used by these tools. AI algorithms may analyze large amounts of data, including personal information, financial data, and intellectual property, making it essential to safeguard this information. However, staff members may not always be aware of the sensitivity of the data they are working with. With a DLP Solution, the movement of sensitive data can be monitored to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, such as by restricting copying or transferring of sensitive data.
Scenario 3: Working in a Public Place
Working in a public place, such as a coffee shop, can pose a risk to data security as sensitive data may be visible to others. This risk is compounded by the fact that people can easily take screen photos or videos of sensitive information on display. With a monitor protection solution, companies can trace back the sources in case of data leakage, deter external parties from copying sensitive data, and remind internal staff to handle sensitive data with care, even when working in a public place.
