Imagine your company as a castle; the precious treasure inside is your valuable data. Now, you’ve got guards (inside threat) to keep the sneaky thieves (hackers) outside. But what if a rogue knight (employee) is inside who’s eyeing that treasure?
That, is an Inside Threat! It’s when someone from within your kingdom (company) turns against you, causing harm or stealing sensitive information. These crafty knights could be current or former employees, contractors, or even business partners who misuse their access and knowledge to compromise your organization’s security from within.
