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, a login and password to access the network and 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 continues to be a serious problem for the U.S. Government, Department of Defense, Intelligence Community, Defense Industrial Base Contractors, Critical Infrastructure Sectors, Universities, businesses, etc.

  • The damages caused to U.S. National Security and businesses by Malicious Insiders has been severe.

  • Not all Insider Threat incidents make the front page of news papers or the evening news, but they 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 a security risk. Information is valuable and in many cases that’s what Malicious Insiders are after, whether it is Classified Information, Sensitive Information, Intellectual Property, Trade Secrets, PII, etc. In some cases Malicious Insiders have sabotaged networks, or destroyed information  systems or erased data.

  • The NITSIG maintains the largest public on-line repository of Insider Threat Incidents, and has received a great deal of praise for publishing these incidents on a weekly basis to our various websites. These incidents provide a very clear picture of how COSTLY and DAMAGING an Insider Threat incidents can be. In the MILLIONS To BILLIONS!!!
