Research suggests that most of the data losses suffered by businesses do not actually result from the external attacks but are instead due to the actions of insiders - i.e. employees. However, in many cases, the data losses happen simply because the insider has been careless or has unwittingly been compromised, for example through a phishing attack.

In this podcast, freelance IT industry analyst Bob Tarzey speaks with Tommy Todd, Senior Strategic Solutions Engineer at Code42. Tommy outlines which insider risks businesses should be most concerned about. He then sheds light on why the most important organisational data, like source code, and business files are more difficult to protect than traditionally regulated data. Finally, Tommy gives expert advice on how organisations can ensure a balance between controlling data and access to it while still ensuring employees can work effectively with the information they need to do their jobs.
