Reduce the Risk of Insider Threats
When organisations think of threats towards their business, the first point of blame is usually external. However, internal threats are increasingly becoming a concern for modern businesses, with a variety of potential culprits being overlooked.
What many employers neglect to take into consideration is that past employees can often retain the same access to networks and files as current employees. Network administrators may forget to remove employees from business systems when they leave (be that temporarily or altogether), meaning that they retain the exact same access as they had before they left. These access rights must be revoked as soon as employees leave the organisation - and altered if their position within the business changes.
