Sophisticated hackers often appear to be legitimate ones. Hackers have a growing and constantly evolving arsenal of attack methods, putting everyone with a connection to the Internet at risk. This is because everyone has something that hackers are interested in, whether it is bank account information, personal identification or even healthcare information. DATAVERSITY brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “Implementing Compliance Intelligence to Combat Data Piracy.

It is important to remember that hacking is no longer about bragging rights. Hackers are now part of a highly specialized and distributed criminal ecology filled with individuals focused on finding exploits in software.

Protecting yourself at the same time of ensuring compliance can be challenging. Technology can be used to fight against technology. One option is compliance intelligence software that integrates data management, analysis, processes, workflows, and organizational skill sets. It is fully transparent to legitimate customers, and to software protection measures already in place.
