Safeguarding Your Organization from Malicious Insiders

Malicious employees can pose a much greater risk than those from outside the organization due to one simple fact: Insider threats already have access to customer data, financial information, and trade secrets.

The potential damages caused by an insider threat may be as straightforward and measurable as embezzlement or as difficult to quantify as brand damage and loss of customer confidence. In today’s fast-paced economy, any one of these impacts could prove the death knell for an affected company.

Depending on the type of insider threat and actions, the costs can easily soar into the millions of dollars, with greater costs associated with poorly trained associates, lack of prompt response, and an overall misunderstanding or under-appreciation of the threat.

What pushes an employee to become an insider threat? The motives are varied, but generally fall into a handful of categories:

  • Financial motivations
  • Anger or frustration with job or coworkers
  • Problems with supervisors
  • Corporate espionage
