General Counsel Survey – Insider Threats to Confidential Information

Download the Report

Kroll, in association with Legal Week, recently surveyed 86 general counsels to find out how companies are prepared to deal with insider threats to their confidential data.

Key findings include:

  • Three in four businesses suffering a breach had their data leaked by employees and third-party vendors.
  • Over half of all data breaches occur by accident.
  • Seventy five percent of breaches resulted from using workplace hardware or data outside the office environment.
  • External campaign groups are more feared than vendors even though vendors originated more breaches.
  • A third of businesses contract without provisions for how to proceed in the event of a confidential data breach.
