92% of employees guilty of snooping

All organisations are vulnerable to insider abuse, errors and malicious attacks. these insider threats run the risk of:

  • Damaging reputation
  • Affecting operations and profitability
  • Exposing data
  • Loosing valuable intellectual property to competitors’

Insiders can be current or former employees, contractors, or other business partners who have been authorised to networks, systems or data. All of them can bypass security measures through legitimate means.

92% of respondents to a recent survey said they have caught their employees attempting to access information that is not  necessary for their day-to-day work. Alarmingly, almost one in four (23%) respondents admitted this behaviour occurs frequently in their organisation. More than one in three (64%) respondents have accessed sensitive information about their company’s performance, with executives and those in smaller organisations being more likely to do so.

This survey exposes a major snooping problem that needs to be addressed by organisations’ cyber security programmes.

Cyber Essentials should be the default standard that organisations turn to when addressing insider threat and other issues, and adopting an integrated approach to people, process and technology.
