Articles / March 24, 2017

Partner James Sherer co-authored an article titled “Technological and Information Governance Approaches to Data Loss and Leakage Mitigation” as part of the March 8-9, 2017, proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security (ICCWS 2017). The article addresses the concept of “data leakage,” or instances where organizations lose access to or control over their important data, especially in the context of insider threats.

In this article, the authors focused on the problems employees may present in connection with data loss prevention or “DLP” strategies. The article also examines the different types of data leakage, including both damage to and disappearance of data; discusses how automatic data loss may occur given the operation of internal information technology systems; and considers how data loss generally may affect internal and external stakeholders as well as the public at large.
