In Q3 2022, Kroll saw insider threat peak to its highest level yet, with an almost 50% rise in volume compared with the second quarter of the year. Insider threat makes up part of the unauthorized access category, which saw an increase in popularity as a threat incident type from 24% in Q2 to 35% in Q3. Kroll also observed a number of malware infections via USBs in Q3, suggesting that wider external factors such as an increasingly fluid labor market and widespread economic turbulence may encourage insider threat.
Join Kroll’s cyber threat intelligence leaders in this and explore key insights and trends from over 3,200 cyber incidents handled worldwide in 2022. For added convenience, we’re hosting this virtual briefing in three time zones, with speakers including Keith Wojcieszek, Laurie Iacono, Alex Shim, Ely Tingson and George Glass.
