If you think most data breaches are due to malicious insiders, you’d be wrong. Forrester found that only 12% of security incidents are caused by disgruntled employees with mal-intent. Whereas, a whopping 27% of security breaches were caused by employees’ inadvertent misuse of data.2
This means that if your company does experience a security breach, it’s 2x as likely to be perpetrated by a reliable employee rather than a disgruntled worker.
In short, your best employees could also be your greatest risk.
