While much of the cybersecurity media and attention focuses on external cybersecurity threats such as ransomware, APTs, and nation-state actors, insider threats continue to plague organizations not only in numbers but in impact. According to Verizon’s 2022 Data Breach Investigations report, the number of database records compromised by the average insider breach since 2008 has surpassed those of the average outsider attack by anywhere from 5-10 to 1. Ponemon’s 2022 Cost of Insider Threats Global Report pegs the average annual insider threat remediation cost for 55% of the sample set at $15.4 million each over a 12-month period.
The insider threat is only one of the subjects covered in depth in Securonix’s recently released “2022 Threat Report”, which analyzes trends in cybersecurity threats and how customers use SIEM to protect their data. The report offers insight and advice, and compelling real-life stories of techniques from the trenches that would be useful for any SIEM-enabled organization.
