Organizations typically focus on external cyber threat prevention. But statistics show insider attacks occur more than 50% of the time and can be a lot more dangerous than external threats.
Any employee or contractor with access to your organization’s confidential data poses a risk and knowledge of internal systems can help the insider escape detection. Whether it's an intentional malicious attack or unintended negligence, these threats can result from policy violations or access control misconfigurations that allow elevated system access to trusted employees.
These activities often persist undetected for extended periods of time and occur in all types of work environments, from small businesses to enterprise level operations. So what can you do to protect your organization? It all starts with security awareness.
