The Rise of the

Insider Threat

The Rise of The Insider Threat

With all the talk of defending against hackers, cyber criminals, malware infection and other external threats, we often overlook a key fact. A huge portion of data breaches and system compromises comes from the inside, not the outside. Insiders are involved in 30% of all breaches based on a recent Verizon study – insider threat is bigger than you think. Carelessness and malicious intent are the two major causes. Both can be mitigated with ZoneFox
