It’s not a matter of if, but a matter of when. In fact, when discussing data breaches, it’s not a matter of when will it happen, but a matter of when did it happen. We started Terbium with the thesis that defense, while still necessary, is no longer sufficient. In today’s insecure digital world, your organization’s critical data will always be at risk, whether from a sophisticated outside actor or inside threat. That’s why modern organizations are shifting their information security focus from prevention to risk management.
One example of this shift has been the evolution of the Chief Information Security Officer’s role within an organization. Traditionally, the CISO position was an information technology one that focused on procuring and deploying defensive IT products on an organization’s network. However, more and more the CISO is moving into the risk management part of the organization, focusing as much on planning, remediation, training, and insuring as he or she is on technology and prevention. Planning for the eventual data breach is crucial in today’s environment, and being able to execute that plan as quickly as possible after a breach occurs is the key to mitigating damage.
It’s to this end that Matchlight Data Intelligence becomes a key part of any information security posture. Matchlight alerts organizations to the presence of their data on the internet immediately and automatically, with a particular focus on the dark web. With Matchlight, organizations can discover breaches within minutes rather than months, and initiate their remediation plans before any further damage can occur.
