Data breach. Inside Job???

Sunday, April 25, 2010

That's right guys, insider threats are now hot stuff!! malicious and careless users are now considered bigger threat than external ones. I mean you can establish firewall, antivirus and anti spam programs to defend your system against external threats, but when you are dealing with internal threats, you don't know where and when its going to hit you. well, you can guess the malicious ones somehow. I mean when you see an employee who is angry at the corporation, it will give you heads up.

However, the careless ones are the bad one. they themselves even don't know that they are creating threat for the company, how you can know!!!!!!

for example in many companies employee write their user name and password on peace of paper and put it on the wall!!!!
I found a video clip of one seminar with topic of "Data Breach" which is quite interesting. In this clip we are presented with two cases of these careless employees. So again, don't underestimate them, they can cost a fortune for their company.

Training and informing employees can be a good way to prevent these unintentional harms, but for sure it is not enough.

That's right. No matter what you do and how much you train your employees or determine acurate and tight security policies, there will be always a good chance that employees find a way to damage the company ingnorantly again.
