Insider threats are caused by a wide range of offenders who either maliciously or accidentally do things that put an organization and its data at risk. The insider threat landscape is becoming more difficult to deal with as the range of miscreants moves beyond employees and privileged IT staff. It now includes outsiders who have stolen valid user credentials; business partners, suppliers, and contractors with inappropriate access rights; and third-party service providers with excessive admin privileges. Unless properly controlled, all of these groups have the opportunity to reach inside corporate networks and steal unprotected data.

Concerns about data security – or, more accurately, the lack of it – have entered the public consciousness over the past twelve months in a way never before seen. Over this period, we have witnessed countless stories making the headlines about cyber threats, covert surveillance, security breaches, and data loss. The response to this has been a global awakening in the minds of the public about the urgent need to address data security concerns. This, in turn, has prompted law makers and regulators the world over to become increasingly engaged in implementing new legal frameworks and defining new obligations for data security.

Because wireless is a shared medium, it is subject to malicious attacks such as de-authentication broadcasts, evil twin access point/Honeypot.

During the course of research efforts in the all-flash array (AFA) space, IDC is still encountering IT executives, particularly CIOs and CFOs, who have an outdated perspective on relevant cost metrics for comparing all-flash solutions with legacy hard disk drive (HDD)–based systems. In IDC's view, flash is an absolute requirement for performance reasons in any 3rd Platform computing environment.

Security and risk (S&R) pros have the challenging task of using finite resources (including budget, time, and people) to protect their businesses from every possible attack type. On top of this, S&R pros don’t just need to watch out for threats coming from outside their walls, but must keep an eye on internal threats as well.
S&R decision-makers face threats from three groups of insiders – compromised accounts (internal accounts that have been compromised by external attacks), careless misuse (internal policy violators and those who accidentally leak or expose data or systems), and malicious insiders (insiders who purposefully take or misuse data or exploit systems), and they must be prepared for each.
In February 2017, Mimecast commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate the state of enterprise security readiness for internal email threats.
