40% of security experts predict insider data breaches in coming year. Partially attributed to poor enforcement policy, almost half of security professionals feel a breach will occur in the next year and will be conducted by an insider. Heath Davies, chief executive at Clearswift said, “The detachment between the front line security professionals and board members within an organisation is particularly worrying in the wake of recent high-profile cyber breaches.” As Clearswift highlights in its 2015 Clearswift Insider Threat Index (CITI), 40 percent of firms expect an insider data breach in the next 12 months.Further, half admit that they ignore data protection policies at work to get their job done.
