Gamblers, debtors, addicts, and other risk groups
A competitor began to lure customers systematically at the stage of signing agreements. The risk management department of a company was also concerned about the change in the behavioral patterns of one of the top managers.
An in-depth analysis and notification of the violation of security policy set to identify relations between colleagues showed that a married top manager was intimate with one of the employees who got pregnant.
The woman would actively communicate on social networks with an employee from a competing company. The risk management department suggested that learning about this "skeleton in the closet", the competitors decided to blackmail the top manager and forced him to leak the data. To test the hypothesis, the top manager was told deliberately false information about the upcoming transaction – and the competitors really took advantage of this.
