Internal threats are present when the team uses workflow collaboration tools . They can take different forms , for example , accidentally sharing a customer database , intentionally disclosing the company business plans or sending confidential data to the public cloud .
DLP solutions with content-based protection capabilities can help reduce these security risks by monitoring and blocking shared private data .
Adopt Zero Trust : ‘ Never trust , always verify ’ is the basic principle of Zero Trust and means that there is no implicit trust in networks , systems or data . If the organization adopts a hybrid model , it means a mobile workforce and the need to protect people , devices , applications and data , regardless of the location .
