Aberdeen’s Risk Report sets out to answer the question, “How can you know what to do about Insider Risk if you don’t first know how much Insider Risk your organization has?” The report goes on to explain that the best way to understand insider risk at your organization is through visibility, context, and the quantification of the business impact if data is compromised.
Key findings include:
- 1 in 3 reported data breaches involve an insider – and about 80% of those are not malicious but unintended;
- In 2020 a breach was 4.5x more likely to happen on an endpoint than a server;
- The average number of data exposure events is 13 data exposure events per user, per day.
