Code42 has released new research showing employees take more risks with data than employers think, leaving organisations open to insider threat.
Some key points:
- Over two-thirds (69%) of organizations say they were breached due to an insider threat and confirm they had a prevention solution in place at the time of the breach.
- Over three-quarters (78%) of information security leaders – including those with traditional data loss prevention (DLP) – believe that prevention strategies and solutions are not enough to stop insider threat.
- Over three-quarters (78%) of CSOs and 65% of CEOs admit to clicking on a link they should not have, showing that no level of employee is immune to lapses in judgement
- Nearly two-thirds (63%) of survey respondents admit to bringing data from past employers to their new jobs
