Turn Your Users Around

March 29th, 2017

It’s been a long time coming, but the mandatory breach notification laws will be in force in Australia next February (Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017). Having seen similar regulations in effect in North America, and with the knowledge that they’re also coming to Europe next year in the form of the EU GDPR, it is impossible for any business to ignore the issue of data security. Organizational change is necessary across the globe.

I was recently in Australia, and the new legislation was a very hot topic in meetings with both existing partners and new customers, bringing up a multitude of questions. From a general perspective, it’s fantastic that more and more organizations are wising up to security (and there are countless surveys to back this up), but from our experience, most seem to be struggling with the myriad of different ways to protect their data and the persistent threat of breaches.

February 28th, 2017

TITUS and the NATO Communications and Information Agency (NCIA) recently signed a joint Master Service Agreement (MSA) that enables TITUS to supply our solutions to NCI Agency, NATO Member Nations and other NATO entities.

Cybersecurity is a major area of concern for NATO, and is considered the fourth domain of operations after air, land and water. NATO and its member agencies know that they need to be prepared to defend networks and operations against the increasingly sophisticated cyber threats and attacks.

Data Privacy Day – Are We Losing the Battle?

January 27th, 2017

Data Privacy Day 2017 arrives on January 28th, highlighting how technology is impacting our ability to maintain privacy while underscoring the importance of protecting our privacy. Yet, the news all month leading up to Data Privacy Day has been anything but encouraging.

Kaspersky Labs issued a report that highlights how little we are actually doing to protect ourselves from privacy breaches. We still use passwords that are easy to crack (40% of hacks are the result of the cybercriminals guessing the password), and we don’t store our passwords securely. To top it off, 20% of us use the same password for multiple accounts while another 10% use the same password for all accounts.

Building Trust

January 18th, 2017


At a recent internal event, two of our large enterprise customers spoke to the entire TITUS team about the value of our products within their organization. What hit me most was how often they used the term ‘Trusted Partner’.

TITUS is grounded in the belief that building a trusted partner relationship with our customers is just as important as the products that we support. This begins by highlighting the experience and knowledge we possess which will make their data classification journey a success. However, just saying it is not enough. The TITUS Deployment Methodology, which our customers can reference from their initial deployment through future evolution and expansions, gives customers direct access to our vast experience and knowledge.

Protecting Information in a Multi-Cloud World

January 11th, 2017


Around our office there is a lot of talk about “hybrid Cloud” as we help our customers create strategies to safely migrate from on-premise to cloud storage and applications. A hybrid cloud strategy provides both flexibility and peace of mind, enabling organizations to ease into utilizing the Cloud at their pace. The actual challenge however is not finding the right balance between on-premise and the Cloud, but coping with the multitude of cloud options.

Happy Holidays from TITUS!

December 23rd, 2016


I really enjoy year end, and not just for the reason you might think. Of course there are the parties, the gifts, the food, and the time spent with friends and family. But I hold a relatively unique position as a CEO and founder of a company, so I have the opportunity to reflect upon my business. And, I like what I see.

We often talk to our customers and prospective customers about the various benefits of using classification, such as stopping the malicious insider, ensuring your sensitive information is secure, keeping internal information from inadvertently leaking, and many more.

But, what about the basics? What about the dreaded ‘reply all’?

Generally, we think about ‘reply all’ incidents as a source of embarrassment and potentially an information leak. But not every ‘reply all’ scenario impacts your reputation. I’m talking about the scenario of hitting reply all…and there are 840,000 colleagues on the distribution list. Uh oh…

A Day of Remembrance

November 11th, 2016


My 3-year-old daughter is fortunate enough to have great-grandparents in her life who play with her and tell highly amusing anecdotes detailing the differences between her life and theirs when they were children. Something struck me recently – when they are gone, there will be no one in her life who has lived through a world war.

My own grandfather used to tell my brother and me war stories that sounded like they were out of the movies – to our young ears they sounded incredible.  My grandfather, Wing Commander at 24, awarded the Distinguished Service Order (DSO) and Distinguished Flying Cross (DFC) from the RAF as well as an American DFC; the war hero, the tough guy.  My heart would swell with pride when I spoke about him.

Enhancing Insight with Third Party Reporting

October 13th, 2016


My colleague Libby Robinson recently provided an overview of the benefits and insights built-in TITUS reports can provide. However, during my 16-year career in security & analytics, I have also come to appreciate working with a dedicated data reporting system. If you are like me, you enjoy having the flexibility to precisely control reporting logs in order to present the data exactly the way you want using your preferred tools. TITUS recognizes that there are not only “do it yourselfers” like me, but also different SIEM, business intelligence and insider threat detection systems that organizations rely on. TITUS log data provides unique insights into how users are working with your most sensitive information – so feeding this data into third party reporting systems will provide your organization with insights not otherwise available.
