What are Internal threats?

An internal or insider threat refers to the risk posed to an organization by its own employees, contractors, or partners who have authorized access to its systems, networks, or data. These individuals, who are already inside the organization’s perimeter, can cause harm intentionally or unintentionally. Insider threats can take various forms, including theft of sensitive information, sabotage of systems, fraud, or even the spread of malware. Unlike external threats, insider threats can be particularly difficult to detect and prevent since insiders already have legitimate access to organizational resources. Therefore, organizations must implement robust security measures, such as access controls and monitoring systems, and conduct employee and security awareness training to help mitigate the risks associated with insider threats.


In Netenrich

With our advanced data analytics and machine learning technology and expertise, Netenrich can help organizations identify and mitigate the risks posed by employees or contractors with malicious intent. Our Resolution Intelligence Cloud™ platform can provide continuous monitoring of user activities, network traffic, and data access to detect any suspicious or anomalous behavior or unauthorized access. Netenrich also implements robust access controls and identity management protocols to help ensure that only authorized individuals can access sensitive information.

An example of an insider threat could be a disgruntled employee who has access to sensitive data and decides to sell a company’s proprietary code to a competitor. This type of insider threat not only compromises the company’s intellectual property but also jeopardizes its competitive edge in the market. It highlights the importance of implementing robust security measures and continuously monitoring employee activities to mitigate the risk of insider threats.
