Code42 sponsors the For Dummies book, which offers a bite-sized guide on a new way to secure valuable data from loss, leak and theft

Minneapolism MN — Sep 21, 2021 — / — The new, free Insider Risk Management For Dummies book is now available – in digital and print formats – for security teams exploring or beginning implementing an Insider Risk program.

The For Dummies book, written in any easy-to-read format, offers security practitioners and decision-makers a framework for the technical capabilities needed for an Insider Risk Management (IRM) solution. IRM programs help digital-first organizations wrap a layer of data security around their collaborative, modern workforces, who rely on sharing data to stay productive and innovative. Included in the guide is a 5-part approach that security teams can follow to launch, maintain and optimize their own IRM solutions.

Code42, the Insider Risk Management leader, sponsored the new For Dummies book, which was written for information security teams scoping their IRM programs and needing help with where to start. For these security teams, the book delivers strategies that can help them combat the 13 data exposure events that each of their employees cause on an average day. The book also rings true for security professionals who have gone through the painstaking experience of managing traditional data loss prevention (DLP) technologies and continue to be plagued by data leaks, loss and thefts. Research has shown that about two-thirds of those organizations have had data loss incidents due to an insider even with a prevention solution in place at the time.
