Insider Threats Are Among Us
The thought of one of our colleagues
consciously undertaking malicious acts to harm or profit from the
company we work for is alarming, but the number of incidents in which
malicious insiders destroyed critical business systems, leaked
confidential data, stalked employees and extorted employers is
increasing every year.
34%1 of all breaches in 2018 were
caused by insiders, yet less than 20%2 of U.S.
organizations possess effective security programs to combat it.
Protecting your organization against insider
threats requires more than a data loss prevention solution. To ensure
your organization possesses a mature security posture against insider
threats, it’s critical to assess your existing environment and
implement effective, continuous security program capabilities.
