Considering that there were an estimated 300,000 internal breaches of security in UK organisations last year, and more than twice that in the US, it is surprising that insider threats are not further up the IT agenda. Perhaps the lack of awareness of how technology can help holds IT professionals back from attempting to tackle it.
What is good, however, is that awareness does seem to be increasing. Our research findings here echo our own experience when talking to those in the industry. IT professionals are becoming more security conscious, and internal security is becoming a bigger part of that.
With the approach we’ve laid out here, IT professionals that are looking to mitigate the risks of insider threats will be better equipped to do so.
