Unintentional Insider Risk, report by Ponemon

Raytheon has published an interesting report called “The Unintentional Insider Risk in United States and German Organizations“, conducted by Ponemon Institute. Worth to have a look.

Some highlights:

  • IT practitioners agree unintentional employee negligence causes more security incidents than intentional and malicious acts
  • Telling the difference between malicious and negligent security incidents is difficult.
  • Long hours and multi-tasking are also red flags for risk


The report also contains results for “8 scenarios that often lead to security incidents”.
