Security Executives on the Future of Insider Threat Management

To compile this report, Endera commissioned research firm Vanson Bourne to survey 200 security executives who are focused on insider threats, workplace safety and security at enterprises with more than 1,000 employees to learn about how these businesses are experiencing and addressing workforce related incidents and risk.

Some of our key findings are below:

  • On average, companies experience at least 3 workforce related incidents a week – that adds up to a whopping 156 a year
  • 87% of security executives reported that contractors/freelancers are most likely to be the cause of workforce related security incidents at their company; two-thirds (64%) reported that supply chain/third party vendors were the most likely cause
  • 55% of respondents admit they are struggling to limit the number of workforce related incidents and 44% are not aware of any potential workforce or personnel issues prior to an incident
  • 88% agree that continuously evaluating workforce risk will help their company better understand and prepare for risks
