It feels like I’ve been writing a lot about the insider threat lately, but then again, it seems I read about a new incident caused by insiders almost daily. So much time, effort and money is spent on keeping the outsiders from getting to systems and data, but a comparatively little amount is spent on addressing, and trying to prevent, insiders from doing bad things. Folks who are trusted and have authorized access can do so much harm. The technologies focusing on the outsiders are not going to do much to protect your information from insiders.
