“We discovered in our research that insider threats are not viewed as seriously as external threats, like a cyberattack. But when companies had an insider threat, in general, they were much more costly than external incidents. This was largely because the insider that is smart has the skills to hide the crime, for months, for years, sometimes forever.” Dr. Larry Ponemon, Chairman, Ponemon Institute
Businesses often ignore Insider Threats
The new Ponemon report, sponsored by ObserveIT and IBM, also breaks down different categories of insider threats by percentages:
62% of incidents are by negligent insiders
37% of incidents are by criminal or credential insiders
And on a per incident basis, the criminal and credential insider incidents are by far the most expensive.
Besides, Ponemon research also shared that: "The average annual cost of Insider Threats has skyrocketed in only two years, rising 31% to $11.45 million."
This shows the subjectivity of most businesses in the prevention of insider threats.
