We had the opportunity to sit down with Robert Powell, Editorial Director Americas and Thought Leadership at The Economist Intelligence Unit, to discuss his recent report, Cyber Insecurity: Managing Threats from Within. This report focuses on people-centric threats and why they are so prevalent.
During this podcast interview, Robert revealed that 85% of executives identified that most cybersecurity breaches are a result of human vulnerabilities—not because of faulty technology. Robert drives home that it’s essential to ensure responsible employee behavior; we all have a role to play. It’s not only the C-level that is the most targeted, but also the people with access to them and the sensitive information that they handle.
