The Risks of Unstructured Data

Government organisations are faced with the conflicting objectives of sharing sensitive information more broadly while also keeping it secure from insider threats and outside attackers. This sensitive information can include personally identifiable information (PII), intelligence products, procurement information, and both classified and unclassified information. The confidentiality of this information is not only vital to national security but also to the privacy of government employees. All of this is happening while governments are also dealing with reduced budgets, shortages of qualified cybersecurity professionals, and persistent nation-state threats. Governments need easy to use and cost-effective security solutions that greatly increase their ability to prevent data theft by determined inside and outside attackers.
