Technology

The technology sector endures cyber attacks and insider abuse on a daily basis. A high level of competition, geographically distributed partners, outsourced services, BYOD polices and freelance employees – all of this puts an enormous amount of confidential data at risk.

For technology companies, internal risks that are associated with employee activities include:

  • Intellectual property theft
  • Interruption of IT processes
  • Leakage of client data
  • Network and system disruption
  • Contractual and regulatory non-compliance
