In fact, behind phishing, it is most often ranked as one of the top cybersecurity challenges by CISOs and CIOs. According to PwC’s Audit Committee Update on Insider Threat, 44 percent of data breaches are attributable to insiders and 80 percent of attacks are committed during work hours on company-issued software. Insider threats can impact a company’s operational capabilities, cause significant financial damages, and harm brand equity. The mean cost of a cybersecurity breach involving employees or others within an organization is $8.7 million, according to a Ponemon Institute report, “2018 Cost of Insider Threats: Global”. Some insider breaches are intentional and some are non-malicious, just the result of negligence. There have been a variety of recent malicious incidents that have included employees stealing hard drives of data, leaking information, and even inserting malware into networks.
