Insider Threats in cyber security are threats posed to organizations by current or former employees, contractors, business associates or other partners. These individuals have inside information on the organization in question, and may misuse access to networks, applications and databases to wittingly or unwittingly cause damage and disruption and/or erase, modify or steal sensitive data.
Balance Your Insider Threats
Information at risk of being compromised by insider threats could include personal information relating to employees and customers, intellectual property, financial records, and details about company security controls. All organizations are at risk of insider breaches, but recent research has indicated that the finance, manufacturing and healthcare sectors can be particularly susceptible.
According to Kroll’s 2019/2020 Global Fraud and Risk Report, incidents caused by insider threats account for 66% of those reported by organizations.
