Computer-MouseA recent study conducted by an IT performance management software vendor exposes that internal threats are just as concerning as external threats. Results include that the top concern for the federal IT agents were careless insiders followed by the general hacking community, this suggests that internal affairs are considered as more of a threat for the sample population. It is however also said that 26% of this total population consider insiders to be more damaging, the 37% more inclined to outsiders, and 38% for both. These are both unequal risks, but risks governing positions should consider spending more in regard to that high response to prevent damaging effects.
