Enforce least privilege. Systematically enforcing least privilege across your organization secures the business against negligent and compromised insiders. Tools that minimize end-user access based on necessity and automatically prevents or notifies security teams about high-risk activity provides an extra layer of protection against exfiltration.
Prevent external sharing to private email accounts. If business users are free to share sensitive information to external users unauthorized and unmonitored, it’s incredibly difficult to prevent malicious insiders from exfiltrating data. This goes double for data stored outside the organizational perimeter, i.e., within SaaS apps.
Automate data access controls. Security teams require tools that enable them to act quickly to remediate data access issues and prevent overexposure to protect the business – ideally, tools that automatically send alerts for risky activity and allow for the creation of data access policies that help prevent insider risks from becoming threats.
