Intellectual Property (IP) Leaks: A Top Digital Collaboration Security Risk
The value of intangible assets is growing. For the S&P 500, intellectual property (IP) now constitutes 84% of an average business’s worth. And unlike tangible assets — real estate, cash in the bank, products in a warehouse — intangible assets are at constant risk of exfiltration or loss.
What damage could it do if an employee or partner accidentally or purposefully exposed business plans, merger/acquisition details, R&D results or patent information to unauthorized parties in or outside the company? A single leak could cost an organization millions — even billions — of dollars.
To avoid catastrophic damage from an IP leak, companies must proactively prevent leaks before they happen. Every organization with an enterprise collaboration tool or social network should be using a security platform that secures and automatically monitors all content and activities, and predicts and prevents unwanted future activities.
