Working with the insider threat

“The insider threat is real and significant. Insiders can be anyone from employees to temporary workers, partners, and suppliers.”


In this whitepaper, Ovum explains the significance of the insider threat, what the term means, and understanding the risks involved. Organisations are full of individuals who have access to company information and data that outsiders wouldn’t have, so it is vital that businesses are aware of the potential risks associated from their employees. Insiders can be intentionally malicious, or it can be accidental if individuals aren’t well versed in secure behaviour or haven’t been trained how to spot warning signs.

Free to download, this whitepaper covers key topics on the subject, including:

  • What is an insider threat?
  • What are the potential types of insider threat?
  • How to undergo an internal risk assessment
  • Methods of security control to mitigate risks associated with the insider threat
