How to protect your organization against insider threats
Nearly half (49%) of business executives and 43% of IT decision makers have clicked on a potentially malicious link in an email before verifying that it was safe to do so, according to a new Code42 study[pdf] that highlights the insider threat to companies.
In the past year and a half, 38% of organizations have suffered a data breach. Half of these incidents were caused by the actions of staff members. By contrast, just 25% of firms blamed the incidents on external actors like cybercriminals. Furthermore, 77% of IT decision makers said that the biggest security risk to their organization stems from employees that disregard security policies at work.
