Over the last few years, companies around the globe, in every industry, have seen their sensitive internal data lost, stolen or leaked to the outside world. High-profile leaks, like that of Edward Snowden, made headlines and struck fear into many companies worried that disgruntled employees could walk off with documents or data that would result in tremendous damage to their brand and reputation if made public. These risks are pervasive across the organization – not just with unhappy employees -- and particular attention needs to be paid to those who have access to the most sensitive information.
