Answer is C - 34%

This figure has risen by 9% in 2 years and is expected to rise year on year as users become more advanced. It is essential the modern business either has a defined Insider Threat Program or reviews its existing cyber security tools and identify ways to improve protection.

Are insider threat breaches always caused by malicious intent?


Answer is B - No

The Ponemon Institute calculates the average cost of an insider breach is $513000, this can rise to $8.76m if with malicious intent. It is important when building an insider threat program, you do not only focus on malicious intent. A solution that provides user education is equally important to ensure employees form the first line of defence by eliminating accidental errors.

What kind of employee is more likely to commit malicious insider IT sabotage?


Answer is A - System administrators.

System administrators usually have the knowledge, skill and access privileges to do the most damage to an IT network.

In your day-to-day interactions with your coworkers/employees, you notice the following. Which, if any, may be an indicator of an insider threat?

Unauthorised downloads or copying of files, especially for employees who have given notice of employment termination, is an indicator of a possible insider threat?

By deploying an insider threat tool, you will have the ability to detect this behaviour in real time. However, if the employee had sufficient account privileges to avoid detection in real time, it is important the tool you deploy has the ability to easily review past behaviour.

Yes. The proposed Budget changes to small business tax are aimed squarely at stimulating small business growth. Stimulating small business investment in this way is a very effective way of boosting employment growth (both in terms of real wages and higher employment), so there are likely to be positive flow-on effects to the general economy from these policies.
