Insider Threat is a real and growing risk for banks, brokerages, insurance companies. payment service firms and financial services providers. The liability created by an employee or contractor who has access to financial data, funds transfers or PII/PCI data is a substantial and growing liability that now requires proactive action. Certain individuals can use this access to commit fraud or theft, directly impacting your valuable corporate brand. The ability to proactively detect those who are exploiting trusted access for personal gain, or aiding conspirators in executing more complex attacks is rapidly becoming the number one issue facing financial services today. The decision to commit theft or fraud does not occur overnight, rather it evolves gradually with the individual employee. Often the drivers of this stress are hidden from management’s view until a distracted worker puts themselves and the organization at risk via workplace mistakes, espionage, fraud or theft.
