Insider threats have shifted to include both traditional insiders – individuals with access to critical data as part of their work, and privileged users -- and the compromise of legitimate users' credentials by sophisticated malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs).
According to the latest Insider Threat Report from Thales e-Security, organisations are still wrestling with this growing problem, and struggling to find an appropriate security response.
For example only nine per cent of European enterprises feel protected against insider threats, and 39 per cent are worried about the abuse of "access rights" to their data.
