nCino users generally face two main challenges when it comes to keeping their data secure. First, the data they’re dealing with is often especially valuable — to their organizations and customers, but also to bad actors who could enjoy lucrative paydays. Keeping that data safe often means defending against some of the most sophisticated attacks possible and preventing security gaps that allow small oversights to blossom into big vulnerabilities.
Unfortunately, many Chief Information Security Officers haven’t yet prioritized applying their security frameworks, such as NIST, to their nCino environments. This unmanaged blind spot has certainly led to more breaches of customer data and other proprietary data that is publicly available (e.g. intellectual property,customer lists, competitive intelligence, etc.), requiring a cloud security posture management approach to reduce these misconfiguration risks.
