With all the talk around cybertheft, phishing attacks, worms, spam, identify theft, and other Internet-related crimes, it's easy to lose sight of the fact that much of the risk from corporate espionage and intellectual property theft comes from the inside.
Learn more about how to fend off data losses caused by internal human error and fraud in our white paper entitled "Stopping Insider attacks: How Organizations Can Protect Their Sensitive Information."
You can also listen to our "Stopping Insider Threats" podcast, featuring Mark Ramsey from IBM's Global Business Services team, and Stuart McIrvine from the IBM Software Group.
I read through the podcast transcript and have to say it's downright scary what's going on out there, from organized criminal gangs attempting to recruit employees for corporate extortion to good CRM reps gone bad, selling Social Security numbers to the highest bidder.
This white paper and podcast can provide a good start for reconsidering how you think about the possibility of Trojan horses inside your own workforce, and what you can do to corral them.
