Data Leakage

Data leakage is a threat of having digital information stolen or taken without the knowledge or authorization of the information owner. Stolen data may be sensitive, proprietary, or confidential information such as credit cards, customer data, trade secrets, or matters of national security.

Look for Early Indicators.
  • Abnormal network traffic - Sudden spikes in data transmission could indicate data leakage.

  • Unusual user activity - Unauthorized access, large data transfers, and off-hour downloads could signal a data leak.

  • Suspicious logins - Multiple attempts from suspicious IP addresses may be unauthorized access attempts.

  • Unexpected data access - Monitoring employee access permissions can help detect unauthorized access to sensitive data.

Data compromise is often associated with ransomware attacks, where the data is held hostage and used as leverage to extort payment from the victim organization.


Data modification, which is the threat of critical data being altered without the knowledge of the owner, is becoming the logical next step for attackers as hardened backup solutions and other security controls increasingly reduce the risk and impact of data compromise. These malicious modifications are intended to remain undetected for long periods of time but provide a potentially far-reaching and devastating impact if not detected and addressed.

Small and medium sized businesses that lack proper, critical data hygiene will find it increasingly difficult to prevent, deter, and detect cybersecurity breaches and data compromise.


Prevent Data Leakage.


Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) adds additional protection to a  traditional password login. It is one of the most critical  security controls to prevent unauthorized access. Partner with Blue INK Security to implement MFA on all your business-critical systems and services. 


Access control alone is not sufficient to protect business critical data. Segmenting networks into zones or virtual networks with restricted access offers better protection. Partner with Blue INK Security to limit access and deploy robust controls over your business critical resources.


Only privileged users should have access to private and sensitive resources. Privileged Access enables better password management, control, visibility, and compliance with regulations. Partner with Blue INK Security to deploy robust privileged access management. 


Inability to identify and to report suspicious activity is one of the leading causes of cyber breaches. Security awareness training can be effective in preventing and mitigating user risks. Partner with Blue INK Security to develop an awareness training program for your organization that works.


Speed is absolutely paramount when responding to a cyber incident. Having an IR retainer in place eliminates the stress and provides access to other valuable resources. Partner with Blue INK Security to better plan for a possible incident or a damaging data breach. 


Having access to secure, reliable backups following an incident can help avoid paying a costly ransom. Average ransom payment was up 71% in 2022 approaching $1 million. By partnering with Blue INK Security, you can rest assured your critical data is safe and recoverable when needed.


Detecting and responding to a cyber threat at your endpoints is impossible without a 24 x 7 solution that monitors your environment. EDR is a sophisticated set of tools able to detect and respond to threats based on defined (rules) and learned (ML) threat patterns in real-time. 


Most system vulnerabilities are the result of out-of-date or unpatched systems with exploits openly available for months. It takes significant effort and planning to keep your assets updated at all times. Partner with Blue INK security to help you keep your systems current and protected.


Business Email Compromise (BEC) is one of the most expensive cyber threats today costing organizations on average $500k. Email filtering scans all inbound and outbound email traffic and prevents phishing and blocks vulnerable links. Partner with Blue INK Security to implement Email Filtering to eliminate malicious content from your Inbox.
