BioLock addresses insider Data Threats

New 3500 program biometric locking system from EMKA offers greater personnel and data protection

We were horrified to see that research carried out with Harris Interactive polled 3,484 employees across the United States, Great Britain, and Australia.  A significant number of respondents openly admitted they would abuse proprietary and sensitive information.  First, 22% of US, 29% of Australian and 48% of British employees openly admitted they would misuse data they have been granted access to (either intentionally or mistakenly). This includes:

    • 10% of US, 12% of Australians and 27% of British employees would forward to someone else, like a former colleague.
    • 9% of US, 8% of Australian and 24% of British employees would take the data themselves when leaving a job; and
    • 5% of US, 4% of Australians and 24% of British employees openly admitted they would sell.

Clearly today’s security schemes must focus on the core of the data center. With insiders being responsible for 60% of malicious attacks, the security must focus on those inside, keeping an “Indisputable Audit Trail” of all entries and exits by person – EMKA BioLock technology does this in the most effective way possible – at the cabinet door!
