I’m sure by now you have heard of the controversial security contractor, Edward Snowden. He created a firestorm by revealing that the National Security Agency had a secretive surveillance program to mine Internet firms’ data from their servers.You have to wonder how a low-level contractor was able to release confidential information that could potentially threaten the safety of every U.S. citizen. If a sophisticated government agency like the NSA had an insider threat, your small business is even more susceptible to insider threats. There is no easy way to determine which employees pose an insider threat, but they are considered more dangerous because they know exactly which sensitive information to target. Enterprises also need to have a well-established security plan in order to minimize the potential damage of different types of insider threats such as fraud, theft of proprietary information or sabotage.
