Welcome to your weekly guide on the most interesting collaboration, information security, and data privacy news and events.

Because you can’t follow all of the updates, we do it for you. Here’s a roundup of the latest and most popular topics to catch you up to speed. Check these out …

  • This week we revealed new research we conducted with the Ponemon Institute into the security threat of unsanctioned file sharing by employees. Check out the key findings here.
  • Cyber-attacks are getting smarter and smarter. Did you know that hackers can actually exfiltrate business information through video-sharing websites? Make sure your company is protected.
  • Speaking of cyber-attacks, the U.S. Treasury Department may issue new rules to protect data that would require greater scrutiny of cybersecurity practices at banks and brokerage firms.
  • Once information is out there, it can live for a very, very (Did I already say very?), long time. Research from Ovum suggests that chief information officers and chief technology officers are facing immense challenges managing all of this data.
  • The same Ovum research provides examples of how data leakage impacts companies — causing brand damage and non-compliance. But there is a solution for data protection and control. Find out how Information Rights Management (IRM) can help.

Thanks for joining us, and stay tuned to our blog for more news each week.
