Company insiders are biggest IT security threat

According to the Computer Security Institute, the biggest threat to corporate IT security isn’t viruses, it’s insiders.

The CSI has released its 2007 “Computer Crime and Security Survey” – there’s a good write-up here and you can also download the full report (PDF).

The report is based on responses from IT security staff in U.S. businesses and government bodies. 59% of respondents reported “insider abuse of network access or e-mail”.
