Insider threat damage

Good article from CBR regarding the impact of insider threat damage.  While the article focuses mainly on public companies.  The impact on privately held organizations can be just as crippling.

"Insider attacks cut to the core of an organisation – not only does it put into question security policies, authentication methods, segmentation, encryption, monitoring and other proven countermeasures, it also puts into question employees and the level of trust given to certain individuals in the organisation."
