Last time, we shared an infographic displaying the statistics related to the threats due to careless insiders. A careless insider is usually unaware of the harm they are causing to the organization.
But what happens when an insider willfully wants to harm the organization by misusing the data they have access to? Then, we have a Malicious Insider.
Malicious insiders could be current or former employees/business associates with privileged access to sensitive data who misuse it for financial or personal incentives. This threat becomes more complex when the bad actors misuse the organization’s sensitive data on the cloud because cloud data is often harder to track.
According to a report, 22% of security incidents happen due to malicious insiders. Additionally, the Healthcare and finance sectors are most affected by malicious insiders.
