Employees are often considered a company’s greatest asset. Given increased transparency and access to data, are employees now a company’s greatest threat?
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Insider Threat Mitigation Act of 2017 requires DHS to establish a program to prevent and respond to threats posed by employees with access to classified information. Insider threats can include employees and others who unintentionally release information, either through not following security protocols or falling victim to phishing or other scams.
