Worried about outsiders breaking into your network? Don't overlook your own employees. Just ask Autotote, where a software developer almost stole a $3 million jackpot.
Securing Your Network From Insiders
- Limit access. Set strict rules on who has access to production servers, where data is most sensitive, and enforce them
- Create activity logs. Activate auditing mechanisms and review such logs randomlyand religiously
- Monitor the network. Establish a separate authentication server that stores monitored data in a secure location that programmers cannot access
- Hire carefully. Do background checks on all staffers who have access to critical data
- Regulate hours. Deny employees access to the network during off-hours
