The biggest cybersecurity risk to your organization is your employees, according to the Wall Street Journal. No, your employees are not sinister thieves, but they do handle a lot of data during the workday.
Insider threat refers to a specific event when an employee, contractor or freelancer intentionally—or not—moves data outside your organization’s authorized collaboration tools, company network and/or file-sharing platforms.
As businesses have digitally evolved over the last year, the culture and tools that have made employees more productive—and businesses more resilient– have added a level of cyber risk that many businesses are not prepared for. How many files have your employees uploaded, downloaded, emailed, transferred, synced and shared just in the last 24 hours?
The dynamics of a culture of collaboration and the imperative of digital transformation have seen insider data security incidents (those caused by employee or contractor actions) increase by 47% in the last two years. The majority of those breaches were not intentional.
All of this has been dramatically compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic as remote employees use whatever tech can help them get the job done faster. Employees are 85% more likely today to leak files than they were pre-pandemic.
