While cybercrime continues to escalate, many of today’s most damaging security threats are not the result of the traditional perception of malicious outsiders breaching a network to deliver malware. The real risk which a growing number of organizations are concerned about are security risks resulting from users who have access to sensitive data and systems.
Concerns about insider threats isn’t just a fire drill. Over two-thirds of organizations believe that insider attacks have become more prevalent over the past year, with nearly half of companies reporting having experienced between one and five critical cyber incidents caused by an insider in the past twelve months. The reasons mainly are a lack of employee awareness and training.
