Studies show the greatest data security risk is posed to organizations by insiders because they have access to sensitive information on a regular basis, and may know how that information is protected. Insiders wanting to steal or leak this information may do so easier than an outsider and likely undetected. In many cases insiders have also accidentally leak data or otherwise put it at risk – something that outsiders typically cannot do. For example, attaching the wrong files to an email being sent, oversharing on social media, losing a laptop or USB drive, or through some other mistake, insiders can in fact put an organization's data at risk with little to no effort.
Mistakes: Data leaks originating from mistakes, however, are still a serious concern and are obviously more likely to occur as the result of an insider's actions than from those of an external party trained to solely focus on the organization's cyber security risk.
Motive: When we look at motive, it's important to understand that any sizeable organization is likely to have some employees who are unhappy at work – meaning there may be people who have access to data with a motive for leaking it.
Misfortune: This often times has little to do with the owner of the organization, yet it is the owner who bares all risk and misfortune following these actions.
Facts: The most significant obstacle for a company to overcome is employee complacency. In most corporate environments, upwards of 89.9% of employees are unable to articulate any real understanding of IT-security related issues and are most likely to introduce a virus through an NSFW download, accept malware through a phishing exploit, introduce a corrupted mobile device (BYOD) to the corporate network, or engage in some sort of inadvertent human error which may result in a threat to data security (not updating security settings, using simple passwords, doing secure work on public wifi, etc.).
