In our new podcast series, The People Variable, we look at how people are at the core of security problems and how organizations can understand this problem from a people-centric perspective and effectively educate their end-users.

Nobody wants to view their employees as insider threats. Yet in the last two years, there have been about 40% more insider threat incidents — almost 1 in 3 breaches involves insider threats.
