61% of CIOs say employees are maliciously leaking data
A study of the root causes of insider breaches has found that 61% of IT leaders believe that employees have maliciously risked data in the last 12 months.
However, the research, which involved input from more than 250 US and UK IT leaders and 2,000 US and UK-based employees, found that employees had a very different view of the situation.
92% of employees said they had not accidentally leaked company data, while 91% said they had not done so intentionally. This suggests that employees may be unaware of being the perpetrators of insider breaches.
