Insider data security threats are still keeping IT directors awake at night, according to a survey from enterprise security firm Secure Computing.

The firm polled 103 IT directors and asked them whether they believed insider or outsider threats posed a bigger problem to their organisation.

More than 80% said they prioritise insider threats, defined as either unintentional data leakage or deliberate data theft.

Only 17% felt that external threats posed by hackers are more dangerous.

This could be in part due to the fact that 37% of respondents had experienced data leakage of sensitive information in the past year.
