DTEX Insider Risk News Digest – Q1, 2023

DTEX Insider Risk News Digest – Q1, 2023

It’s been a busy first quarter for DTEX and the broader cybersecurity community. There’s been a wealth of commentary about the need to address the human element in cyber and, in particular, in insider risk management. There have also been a host of security incidents attributed to employee layoffs – a trend we anticipate is only going to continue. From a DTEX side, we’ve seen some great traction on the customer front. In fact, we’ve announced several high-profile customer wins already in 2023, including:

We were able to celebrate another success when Brian Stoner, VP of Worldwide Channel and Alliances at DTEX, was recognized by CRN as a 2023 Channel Chief. Brian led the launch of the DTEX Systems’ Global Partner Program in December 2022. Under his leadership, our channel contribution has grown an impressive 100% compared with 2021, and we now have more than 10 strategic partners.

Most recently, we released our annual 2023 Insider Risk Investigations Report. In this report, our Insider Intelligence & Investigations (i3) Team identified several trends around employee attrition and data loss. This year’s report offered extra value with practical tools to empower insider risk teams to better communicate and resolve incidents pertaining to insider risk. If you haven’t already, make sure you download your copy to take advantage of these tools.

Some of the key findings from the report include:

  • During the first half of 2022, the DTEX i3 Team saw a 20% increase in voluntary turnover compared with pre-pandemic levels. This coincided with a 35% increase in data theft incidents caused by employees leaving companies.
  • 12% of employees took sensitive IP with them when they left an organization, including customer data, employee data, health records, sales contracts, and more.
  • 75% of investigation requests were managed by human resources in the second half of 2022.
  • Unsanctioned 3rd-party work on corporate devices increased nearly 200%.
  • Unsanctioned application usage increased by 55%.

That’s a wrap for Q1! We will continue to keep you up to date on the latest from DTEX. Stay tuned to our blog, where we’ll deliver these updates on a quarterly basis.
