Employees can be the most important asset and the worst threat of every business.
More than 50% of IT infrastructure breaches and sensitive data leaks in businesses and even government agencies comes from inside, either intentionally or not.
Disloyal employees are one of the worst threats of a business today. There are many reasons why an employee may commit a crime against their employer's IT infrastructure:
a Not being promoted a Not receiving a leave or a raise a Not being recognized or have their efforts appreciated a Being warned or dismissed a Having a financial dispute with their employer
However another motive might be greed. If offered a significant amount of money, an employee can easily perform industrial espionage or sabotage, on behalf of a third party (a competitor, or a former employee).
