Data leakage is a big threat to all organizations. Whether it is electronically stored information or paper-based, all data is exposed to the risk of being stolen or inappropriate application.
Data leakage can be caused by both, the internal sources and external sources. It can be intentional or inadvertent. There need to be proper safeguards to prevent both.
Though we are living in the 21st century, yet the use of paper for maintaining the data is still observed.
A study from Intel Security depicts that internal employees account for 43% of corporate data leakage, and half of these leaks are accidental.
|COMPANY||LOSS ($)||TYPE OF BREACH|
|Target Corporation (2013)||248 million||Payment card information|
|Yahoo (2016)||500 million||User accounts information|
To protect the data from falling in the wrong hands, it is essential to classify it. ‘Sensitive data’ is categorized using the Protection Level and Availability Level scales.
One of the ways in which organizations can protect their data from being leaked is by using paper shredding machines.
Paper shredding machines need to be selected depending on the protection level desired by you.
