Think your business isn’t at risk of an insider attack? Think again

the biggest threat to your security is on your payroll

Insider attacks on businesses are on the rise.

In fact, 60% of organisations have more than 20 insider attack incidents per year. Surprisingly, it’s not just the 23% of deliberate attacks by disgruntled, soon-to-be-ex employees that you need to worry about.

The biggest insider threat is the negligent contract or employee. The one who clicks the wrong thing at the wrong time, thanks to distraction, naivety, or simply in error but with good intention.

63% of insider attacks occur for this reason.

Insider negligence is costing businesses like yours £3.2 million a year.

The other type of insider attacks come from credential theft. That’s when somebody else gets your logins for crucial apps in your business, and gains access by pretending to be you.

While this form of attack is less likely, it is by far the costliest, with each incident averaging £619,000 to fix.

These costs incorporate monitoring and surveillance, investigation, escalation, incident response, containment, ex-post analysis and remediation. You can see how it soon adds up.

And let’s not forget, when you have a data breach there are other implications for your business besides the direct financial impact. You have the painful task of explaining the situation to your clients, the loss of confidence that comes with that, and trying to recover any lost data.

So what can you do to avoid insider attacks - and the hefty price tag that comes along with them?

Fortunately, there are several steps you can take to keep your business – and its data – as protected as possible.

And I’d love to help you add this extra layer of protection to your business.
