Know your data so you can protect it

If you don't want employees in your agency to use a USB device, you can install an agent on the laptop that'll block any communication with a USB device. It is one example of a Data Leak Prevention tool, which can help you define the data you're trying to protect from threats within your own network. But that also means you have to know exactly what data it is that you WANT to protect. Khalid Kark of Forrester Research says if you don't know, you can't define it and the DLP tools can't work.

Network-centric tools help guard against internal threats

New tools can help you protect your network from the threat within. Khalid Kark of Forrester Research says there's a set of tools that are considered "network-centric," that will record all the network sessions. That allows cyber sleuths to replay the sessions and find out where any breaches or intrusions are coming from - in house. There are also "data leak prevention" tools you can use that'll allow you to create your own parameters that'll block that information from leaving your network.
