The reality is that for most organisations, your own employees are your greatest security weakness. It’s just human nature that we are fallible, we make mistakes and all the security training in the world will still leave margin for error.

And the more employees you have, the greater that margin is, the larger the surface area for attack for hackers looking to use social engineering and phishing techniques to gain access to valuable data on your network.
 
If the reports are true that JP Morgan’s huge breach was through an employee password, it’s not all that surprising given the couple of hundred thousand employees the organisation has.

That is why it is so important to put in place additional restrictions on user logins and monitor user activity in real time in order to spot oddities in network access behaviour, so that the likelihood of these kinds of breaches is reduced as much as possible.

Look up rainbow tables. Long passwords don't really do much anymore either. If your password is "This is my password and it's very secure" it can still be hacked in a short amount of time. Passwords alone are vulnerable the majority of the time. The only way to have decent security is with two factor auth and/or by forcing the user to change their password regularly. In my enterprise we use 10 char passwords with no complexity requirements and force password changes every 3 months. If someone's password is "password5" and it gets leaked, then they change it to "password6" the auto-hacking bots will fail to gain access.

Why do you need to check your handling of internal threats ...
#ITsecurity   #InsiderThreat  
We've conducted a piece of research with 500 IT decision makers in the UK and US to better understand their attitudes to insider threat, as well as how well set up they are to manage it.

Law firms have some uniquely complex challenges when it comes to IT security.
And IMHO, only the ‘zero trust’ security model can address the problem... #ITsecurity #InsiderThreat

A survey of 500 IT and security decision makers in the UK and US shows that a majority are in the dark about regulatory requirements for their business organization.

Not surprised at all. There are so many standards and regulations for everything in our lives that nobody except for auditors cares about them any more, even about the rare ones that are actually somewhat useful. Personally, after a few your spent working in a fairly big multi-national company, I've reached a state where just hearing the word 'compliance' from anyone will make me ignore everything else that the person says when I'm in a good mood and asking my superior to immediately remove the person from my vicinity or violent actions will follow when I'm in a bad mood.
