From Bradley Manning to Edward Snowden, insider threats are becoming all too commonplace and damaging. The three major types of insider risks involve threats from:

  • Malicious insiders, who deliberately steal information or cause damage.
  • Exploited insiders, who may be “tricked” by external parties into providing data or passwords they shouldn’t.
  • Careless insiders, who may simply press the wrong key, accidentally delete or modify critical information or lose devices with sensitive information.
Why should organizations take insider threats seriously? Because the stakes have never been higher, especially given the value enterprises place on intellectual capital and trade secrets.
