Did you know that in 2015, 60% of data breaches were caused by individuals from within an organization?
Insider threats are growing at an alarming rate, with medium-to-large company losses averaging over $4 million every year. Smaller businesses are at risk too, and it is estimated that in 2014, over half of all cyber attacks targeted companies with less than 1,000 employees. The majority of these breaches are caused accidentally by internal employees or contractors, which means that, whether their intent is malicious or not, people represent the greatest risk to a company's cyber security. Join us for the December 6th NCCoE Speaker Series and learn from the leading experts, including Mitre's Principal Behavioral Psychologist Dr. Deanna Caputo, how you can keep your business safe from these costly and preventable breaches.
