Employees, partners, and customers share information every day as part of the normal communications and business workflow. Yet when sensitive information is shared across digital channels without safeguards, there is risk that it may fall into the hands of unauthorized recipients or even cyber criminals – in violation of corporate policy and with potentially catastrophic consequences.
There is a need to safeguard social media postings and other digital communications against deliberate or accidental disclosures of confidential or personally identifiable information in violation of law or various privacy regulations. These types of information are often the targets of insider theft and misuse, but also the focus of cyber-criminals who can exploit such information for high value on the dark web.
SafeGuard Cyber employs a variety of compliance and cyber defense techniques to prevent misuse or misappropriation of sensitive information by unauthorized users and recipients. With pre-established policies, the platform can analyze social media channels such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, and other digital channels such as Slack, WhatsApp and SalesForce Chatter for postings and/or attachments to flag references sensitive information, based on a lexicon of keyword, phrases, and patterns. Scoring algorithms look at patterns and regular expressions to recognize suspected PII violations in the posting or attachment, and take policy action to quarantine such messages for subsequent review.
Advanced cyber defense capabilities surveil the dark web, including paste bins, commerce sites & discussion forums, to identify digital assets that place enterprise organizations at risk for cyber-attacks and other fraudulent activities– assets such as account credentials, PII, or intellectual property and other confidential documents. Once identified, alerts can be forwarded to appropriate security organizations and action can be taken to remediate threats and ultimately take down or neutralize compromised enterprise assets.
