Following the news that Apple has seen important details of their upcoming operating system and devices leaked to the press, Jamie Graves, CEO, ZoneFox commented below.
Dr. Jamie Graves, CEO at ZoneFox:
“Apple’s second reported deliberate, major leak in two months will be cause for concern. The fact that all the signs are currently pointing towards an intentional act by someone on the inside is also alarming.
Often companies who have large labyrinths of information think that if they don’t give anyone access to the bigger picture – just parts of it – they will be safe. Not so; it’s incredibly easy to fit the pieces together. It’s a startling indication that even the biggest, most advanced companies in the world can be caught out by an employee that wishes to cause harm.
Malicious insiders weave a complex web so it’s vital that companies ensure they have complete visibility into their data, who’s accessing it, where and if it is being diverted to anywhere it shouldn’t be, both stationary and in transit. Apple is aware of leaking within its organisation from a company culture perspective – now it needs to make sure it has the procedures and safeguards in place to avoid future incidents.”
