Think Twice About Where You’re Entrusting Private Data


Today’s story about a Google engineer fired for breaching teenage users’ accounts provides more proof of why privileged access should be continuously audited and controlled.

The story also shows why Google’s lack of transparency ought to raise concerns about relying on the company to host private data.  A great many large organizations other than Google already have in place privileged identity management solutions precisely to mitigate this type of insider threat.

Over the years we’ve seen plenty of similar, albeit sometimes less sensational, stories of costly data breaches inside organizations that failed to take control.
