Ponemon Institute? had surveyed 461 people who work in corporate IT departments in U.S. organizations. And the finding states “Most insider-related data breaches go unreported“
|Approximately 93% believe that the No. 1 barrier to addressing the data breach risk is the lack of sufficient resources, and 80% cited a lack of leadership. Another factor is that no one person has overall responsibility for managing insider threats, according to 31% of respondents.|
I would like to add: there is no “one-size-fits-all” kinda solution to the problem, knowing very well that most of the insider threats arise from human error.
You are only as strong as your weakest link. And in the case of Insider Threat, it could as well be employee negligence 😉
