Data leaks are one of the biggest threats to any organization that handles sensitive information. Leaks can occur when unauthorized parties access, copy, or share data without permission. Data leaks can result in financial losses, legal liabilities, reputational damage, and loss of customer trust.
Many people may think that leaks are caused by external hackers who exploit technical vulnerabilities, but that's not where the real threat lies – especially not with modern SaaS tools with a good security posture like the Atlassian Cloud products.
The reality is that most data leaks are caused by human error, typically by internal actors. For example, users who post sensitive data and credentials to Confluence pages or Jira issues. This can expose the data to anyone who can access the page or issue, including other users, third-party apps, or even search engines in the case of public pages.
