Torsion’s need-to-know access control defends against insider security threat

The problem of employees having information they shouldn’t

The problem of employees having information they shouldn’t

When regular, trusted staff with access to sensitive information, either accidentally or maliciously, allow information to fall into the wrong hands, the damage can be devastating.

And since 7 out of 10 employees have access to information they shouldn’t, accurately controlling who has access to what is extremely difficult for lots of reasons:

  • Staff who get disgruntled and act maliciously
  • Staff are too busy to think about security implications
  • Constant business change – teams, offices, customers, assignments, mergers, levels, roles – things change every day
  • Massive and exponentially growing volume of information
  • Data spread across multiple systems, both on-premises and in the cloud
  • IT teams not having the time to closely understand the data they’re responsible for securing
Torsion is the solution

Torsion is the solution

Torsion defends against insider attack by ensuring employees only have access to what they need, when they need it.

With a permissions policy based on precise need-to-know access, the likelihood and potential severity of insider incidents is minimised.

Lists of people controlling access to a folder tend to get outdated quickly as the business changes.

It is easy to grant access to someone as they need it, but much harder to consistently revoke access when things change. Torsion makes accurate need-to-know access control, simple to achieve.
