Insider threat blind spot enables employee revenge attacks

Based on threat assessments from global organizations in public and private sector industries, Dtex Systems determined there are active insider threats in all assessed organizations.

This is clear proof that none have been able to eliminate the insider threat blind spot. Failure to gain visibility is allowing malicious and negligent employees to engage in undetected high-risk activities on every endpoint, on and off the network. Malicious employees are users that intentionally harm their organizations through theft, sabotage, and blatant disregard for security policies and controls. Negligent employees are often times trusted employees that hurt their organization due to a lack of awareness, error, or because they are left unprotected against attacks.
