Haystax Insider Threat Predictions

Cyber Attack A02
A close-up on an abstract design of a display, which is warning about a cyber attack. Multiple rows of hexadecimal code are interrupted by red glowing warnings and single character exclamation marks. The image can represent a variety of threats in the digital world: data theft, data leak, security breach, intrusion, etc…


The information in these “predictions” centers around how vulnerable companies are feeling to cyber attack – particularly from within. I thought the increase internal vulnerability was interesting especially in light of one recent statistic that I heard.   In a 2015 presentation, the number 2 at the Smithsonian’s Office of Protection Services quoted an FBI statistic that upwards of 93% of art theft was from an “insider” (an employee or visitor granted access to specific pieces). The percentage of internal cyberthieves (or attackers) seems to be catching up to their reality counterparts.
