2019 has been a memorable year in cybersecurity with growing threats and new statistics indicating that battle for data security is far from solved. This is a perfect time to reflect on the challenges and successes in 2019 and share the top 5 most popular blogs of the year.

First, it’s been an exciting year for Nucleus Cyber. Our data-centric approach to data security earned us a 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards Bronze Winner for: Best Insider Threat Solution, Data-Centric Security, and Data Leakage Prevention (DLP), and 2019 Cybersecurity Break Through Awards Best Access Management Solution of the Year. We also became a member of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association, an ecosystem of independent software vendors that have integrated their solutions to better defend against a world of increasing threats.

2019 Was the Year of the Insider Threat

And those threats are indeed growing. The past 12 months have been fraught with malicious malware, ransomware, and data breaches fueled by a growing trend – insider threats. Earlier this year we partnered with Cybersecurity Insiders to determine The State of Insider Threats in 2019 and discovered:

  • 70% of organizations confirm insider attacks are becoming more frequent
  • 68% feel extremely to moderately vulnerable to insider attacks
  • 39% identified cloud storage and file sharing apps as the most vulnerable to insider attacks
  • 85% of organizations find it moderately difficult to very difficult to determine the actual damage of an insider attack

With threat vectors evolving and now turning inward towards our trusted users, modern and proactive approaches to security, such as data-centric security, are more important than ever.
