There are numerous technologies, services, and best practices for keeping your information secure. One of the most underused, in my mind, is applying analytics to system event logs. These data sources can be used as an early warning system that someone has potentially slipped through your security net. There's little or no chance that a person can scan these logs and detect a pattern indicating a security breach. But analytics tools, such as Sybase IQ, can do so and do it in real time to help avert a catastrophic loss of information.
Maintaining data security is difficult with so many criminals targeting organizations of all kinds and sizes. But enterprises should not make it any easier for data thieves by overlooking "simple or intermediate controls" and leaving the welcome mat open to them.
