In this post I want to recommend one interesting movie that I saw long time ago which is related to the topic of this blog, the name of this very very interesting movie is "Office Space"
The name of this movie refer to bad and depressing work condition of some employees of one company who work in small cubicles and hate their jobs.
"We have to space out all day, in other word we have to look at our computer which it seems that we are working but we are not, but the trying to be seen as a working employee require as much effort as the job itself" Peter Gibbons commented about his job.
I really recommend the MBA students specially students with Human Resource speciality to see this movie, in which we clearly see why motivating employees is so important.
Anyway, in this movie Peter Gibbons, who believes that every day is the worst day of his life and also have some problem in his love life decide to seek professional help and go to see a psychiatrist. The shrink decide to hypnotise him, so he send Peter to a place that there is no concerns and worries, however the shrink have heart attack in middle of his work, and peter stays in his condition in which he doesn't worry about anything anymore, and creates funny and amazing consequences and make peter successful in his work.
The reason that I saw this movie as a good example of insider threat and cybercrime is that the company in which Peter is working decides to layoff some of its employees. When layoffs affect Peter's two best friends, they conspire to plant a virus that will embezzle money from the company into their account.
This movie clearly shows a case of Insider threat in which unhappy employees decide to manipulate company's network by planting a virus and steal the company's money.
Make sure to see this movie, it does really worth seeing.
here is the trailer of this movie, enjoy!!
