Boston, December 17, 2015 – Internal hits to an organization’s cybersecurity are critical to prevent, since trusted individuals have access to the firm’s operations, systems, and highly confidential data. An insider threat can be accidental or malicious, but the outcome is the same: exposure of the organization’s data or information and damage to its systems, operations, or reputation. As the average employee becomes more tech-savvy and the need for robust countermeasure programs increases, what are firms’ best defenses against their insider threats?
This report discusses insider threats, firms’ protection methods and challenges, and associated financial costs. It is based on Aite Group’s 2015 discussions with asset managers and global custodian service providers as well as vendors’ product demonstrations to understand perspectives and insights on cybersecurity and the insider threat.
