With news that Dropbox and Kmart, owned by Sears Holdings, became the latest retailer to suffer a security breach to its payment data systems, something has to change with how data is being accessed. Cybersecurity within a company is becoming more important with the increased usage and associated value of data and analytics. While companies can restrict access to data, there is not much to stop employees, contractors or malware from walking out the door with enterprise data. This is due to the fact that the fortress model of keeping company assets behind firewalls is inherently and irreparably broken.

Despite having copious intelligence and information, and a wealth of other data, security software isn’t able to effectively anticipate security threat events….yet. More data will need to have more security so that the IT team can be empowered handle threats. However, this doesn’t equal the ability to protect against and predict data breaches. Increasing a team’s confidence doesn’t mean that they will be able to predict breaches with any more accuracy.
