The Silent And Damaging Threat From Within - The Insider Threat

Why Are Organizations So Vulnerable To The Insider Threat?

  • Insiders have already obtained a badge to access significant portions of an organization’s facilities, and a login and password to access significant amounts of an organizations data.

  • Insiders also know what data in an organization has the most value.

  • Insiders attempting to commit a malicious action against the government or businesses will exploit an organizations vulnerabilities and weaknesses that are many times overlooked or ignored, and will give the malicious insider the greatest chance of success, without being caught.

  • Insiders in most cases know what is checked and not checked, and know when they won't be checked or challenged.

 

 

 

Insider Threat Damages

  • The insider threat is a serious problem for the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, Intelligence Community, Defense Industrial Base contractors and businesses.

  • The damages caused to national security and business by malicious insiders has been severe. (Classified Data Breaches; WikiLeaks, NSA, and many other espionage / fraud incidents).

  • Not all insider threat incidents make the front page of news papers or the evening news, but they are damaging, costly and happen a lot more frequently then most people realize.

  • Insider threat actions can compromise an organizations security, affect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of an organizations data, information systems and networks and degrade an organizations ability to accomplish its mission or business function. In the Navy Yard shooting incident, life’s were lost.

  • Whether an organization has just 10 employees or 100,000, the Insider Threat is always a security risk. Information is valuable and that’s what malicious Insiders are after, whether it is classified information, sensitive information, intellectual property or trade secrets. In some cases insiders have sabotaged or destroyed information  systems or erased data.

  • The NITSIG has complied some "Eye Opening" reports, surveys and incidents related to the insider threat problem.
