Insider Threats for Financial Services


Insider Risk in Financial Services: The $14.5 Million Problem

Insider risk is a challenge across many industries. Financial services companies face some of the worst outcomes. A recent benchmark study found that the Financial services sector experienced the highest average yearly cost. Containing insider threats costs the industry $14.5 million annually. That is a 20.3% increase from 2018.

Insider incidents at financial services companies can lead to: fraud, financial losses, data leaks, regulatory fines and more.  The root cause may be a sloppy user or third-party contractor, an angry employee or a stolen login. No matter the cause, companies need visibility into insider threats. People-centric security helps financial companies better manage risk.
