The second annual Risk of Insider Fraud Study reveals that the insider threat has become more of a challenge for IT professionals. The number of employee-related incidents of fraud continues to remain high. Contributing to the insider risk is BYOD, employee access of enterprise systems from remote locations and lack of security protocols over edge devices. Access this survey to explore growing data security trends and understand their impact to your organization. Among the key findings are:

  • On average, it takes nearly 3 months to discover fraud and even longer to investigate.
  • Organizations struggle to manage and track privileged user behavior within legacy systems.
  • A majority of respondents report an employee’s malfeasance has caused financial loss and possibly brand damage.
  • Eighty-one percent say they already had an employee use someone else’s credentials to gain elevated rights or to bypass separation-of-duty controls.
