BLUFCOVID-19 has transformed how and where office-based work is located, bringing an increased threat to cyber-security.
The DTEX Systems Workforce Security Software Report highlights these trends in cyber security threats resulting from working remotely.
- End of corporate perimeter-centric security and requirement for security teams to be able to protect thousands of remote offices at once.
- A 72% growth in actionable super malicious insider threats, with theft of either data or intellectual property being the most common leak, followed by sabotage
Organisations can counter the risk by:
- Making insider threats an organisational priority.
- Build up their insider risk function outside of the cybersecurity team, as the traditional security team is designed to detect external threats, not internal.
- Use employees as a sensor on the front line of surveillance.
- Setting cyber standards and acknowledging good behaviour.
