Detect Inside Threats
An insider threat means a malicious threat to a group or organization that originates from a member who usually belongs to the group or organization, and has inside information concerning the organization’s security practices and computer systems. The insider threat may contain fraud, theft of confidential information, intellectual property theft, or computer systems sabotage.
Generally, it is easy for a company to detect or control an outside threat, and extenuate the outsider threat because a company’s primary security protection such as firewalls, physical or electronical access controls are specifically built for the untrusted external attackers so that the outside cannot access the confidential information easily.
On the contrary, an insider attack is easier to cause the most damage than an outsider attack in a company. The insider attack is one of the biggest threats in the modern enterprises because an insider has a significant advantage over the confidential information or products of the company. Therefore, you should take corresponding actions to identify and prevent insider threats in the company.
