This e-book reviews 10 headline-grabbing insider threat incidents that provide a useful glimpse into the reality of this growing threat. (Some of these occurred or began before 2019, but all have been disclosed or prosecuted in 2019 or 2020.) We explore:

Who is behind them—and why
Why insider incidents may be intentional, accidental or the result of account compromise
How much they cost the organizations they hit
What we can learn from them to better protect your organizations
