WHAT LURKS IN THE INSIDER THREAT BLIND SPOT?
Despite increasing investment in security tools, organizations are still getting breached – and so many of those breaches, whether organizations realize it or not, are ultimately due to the human element. The 2018 Insider Threat Intelligence Report collects findings from Dtex’s User Threat Assessments across the North America, South America, Europe, and Asia/Pacific regions to paint a picture of global insider threat insights and trends.
The clear takeaway is that visibility gaps still allow insiders to jeopardize organizational security through high-risk activity, whether it be due to malicious intent, outside infiltration, or simple human error. Every organization assessed found some form of insider risk. Key trends this year include a significant rise in sensitive company data publicly accessible on the internet due to human error, pervasive use of anonymous or private browsing to bypass security, frequent high-risk application usage, and an overall struggle for organizations to close the insider threat blind spot.
Overwhelmingly, organizations assessed had no idea what users were really doing with their data. Download the report now to find out the answers.
