Everyone may have been taken aback by the fact that Tesla, a leader in electric vehicle manufacture, was hacked from the inside. Reported by CNBC, "Musk said this person had conducted 'quite extensive and damaging sabotage' to the company's operations, including by changing code to an internal product and exporting data to outsiders."
It appears the electric vehicle giant was overly trusting of its current executives and employees to allow such a thing to happen. Perhaps a real insider threat prevention program (ITPP) would have prevented this mishap. Real ITPPs are based in practice and culture. Understanding critical assets, defining policies and enforcement, monitoring employee actions, defining separation of specific duties, and understanding system change controls are just some of the areas where organizations with significant intellectual property can start to protect their investments.
