Protect User Data

What is the Problem?

Enterprises are increasingly struggling to meet data protection and compliance regulations such as GDPR. Symantec estimates that 4,818 unique websites are ‘formjacked’ every month. Google was recently hit with a €50 million fine – GDPR violations could cost an enterprise up to 4% of its annual turnover in fines. Enterprise websites are one of the key sources of inadvertent user data loss or malicious user data theft, all of which could lead to significant business risk and potential regulatory violations.

What is the problem? Enterprise web sites and apps integrate code and resources from dozens of third-party service providers, all the way from user analytics, marketing tags, CDNs, to third-party JavaScript libraries, and many others (see figure below). In most enterprises, the Infosec organization has little visibility or control over these third-party service integrations. The lack of adequate risk assessment and monitoring leaves enterprise websites exposed to data leakage. In particular, third-party services can have a direct impact on user data access and GDPR compliance:

Why Are Enterprise Websites Exposed to Data Leakage?

The lack of adequate risk assessment and monitoring leaves enterprise websites exposed to data leakage. In particular, third-party services can have a direct impact on user data access and GDPR compliance:

 

  • Without adequate monitoring, sensitive application and user PII data can be exposed to unauthorized third-parties. For e.g., third-party services could collect sensitive information such as credentials, passwords, SSNs as the user is typing them into forms. This could lead to a direct violation of data protection compliance rules (e.g., Article 32 of GDPR).
  •  

  • Third-party services could allow “piggybacking” of other fourth- or fifth- party services that could expose the site to a broader attack surface that may go undetected.
  •  

  • Without Infosec oversight, compromised or malicious domains could be inadvertently added to an enterprise site, leading to an overall website compromise. Vulnerabilities in third party scripts or open source libraries could be exploited by attackers.
