Around 90 percent of IT security violations have internal company causes. That is the key message of an IDC (International Data Corporation) study on behalf of the IBM software subsidiary Tivoli Systems. According to this, more than 45 percent of the damage is caused by dissatisfied employees.
Unauthorized data access, data falsification, theft of intellectual property and the associated loss of work can be the consequences.
The study “Delivering the Value of IT: Security as a Strategic Priority” is based on 200 interviews with major European companies. More than 2,500 employees who are responsible for internal IT security were surveyed.
