Insider Threats going Dark

Pro Security Tip #1

The insider threat to your company is very real. How much access do some employees have too much access to your customer’s information? Do you have a disgruntled employee that has a lot of information that could be used in a way it shouldn’t? Well here are a few ways to protect against an insider threat.

  1. Don’t treat employees poorly
  2. Use a password management system to make it hard for a rogue employee to abuse the access they have.
  3. Do quarterly security check-ups
  4. If you suspect an issue don’t jump the gun have a third unbiased party look into the situation before you just fire someone.

Rouge employees can be selling your customer data on the Dark net which can leave you liable.
