How Can You Protect Your Organisation From Internal Threats?

Today nearly 40 percent of IT security breaches are perpetrated by people inside the company*.
Below are some of the top internal security threats that every organisation should be aware of and actively protecting against:

  • BYOD – More organisations than ever before are utilising BYOD, however without the correct tools this can open up your network to a huge number of untrusted devices.

  • Employee Mobility – It isn’t just the challenge of BYOD that needs to be on your Radar. With the ever decreasing size of portable memory, it’s easier than ever to take data from internal machines.

  • Physical and Logical Security – Whilst companies place a lot of emphasis on data security and the security of physical IT infrastructure, all too often it can be the loss or theft of physical assets such as storage systems that lead to data being leaked. Monitoring activity at physical entry points such as car parks and security doors can also add additional levels of security.

  • Malicious Cyber-Attacks – Technically proficient employees are more than capable of using their system access to open back doors in to computer systems or leave programs on the network to steal information. With the dramatic increase to develop BYOD policies to support employee demands there is an ever higher probability that employees will inadvertently download equally damaging programs on to the network.

  • External Staff – External contractors are a vital part of any large organisation, but it takes a lot of resource to ensure they don’t pose a threat to your organisation.

Honeycomb’s advanced user and machine behaviour tools provide you with the opportunity to set up, monitor and alert you to rogue behaviours on all devices and networks keeping IT professionals on top of internal security threats.
