Why IT pros fear employee error, not hackers, will cause the most breaches
Security analytics firm Gurucul has released a new report on the growing insider threat to organizations. The survey that was conducted among over 650 IT professionals from various countries indicates that nearly 3 out of 4 organizations are vulnerable to insider threats.
Companies consider the biggest insider threats to be user error (39%), malicious insiders (35%) and account compromise (26%). A particularly worrisome finding is that only around one-third (34%) of organizations believe they can detect threats in real time. According to the report, manufacturing firms are most at risk, followed by organizations in the health care sector.
