Quick – name a security risk to your business that represents over half of security attacks. Did you think “people inside my business?” Probably not. Yet the 2015 IBM Cyber Security Intelligence Index found that over half of security attacks came from within: 31.5 per cent from malicious insiders and 23.5 per cent from inadvertent actors.

More than half of all people seeking to defraud a company are inside the fortress, suggest figures from consultancy PWC’s Global Crime Report. That figure has risen steadily over the past few years, the firm says, adding that it now seems to be younger staff who are spearheading the trend. The same survey also saw a change in the nature of fraud. Now, criminals are as likely to indulge in procurement fraud – making false company purchases, for example – as they are to steal cash or data.
