Honest help is hard to find. If they would sell passwords then they will look at ‘private’ data and gossip about it too.

“A cyberattack could cost an organisation millions, but an employee within your company might be willing to give an outsider access to sensitive information via their login credentials for under £200.

According to a report examining insider threats by Forcepoint, 14 percent of European employees claimed they would sell their work login credentials to an outsider for £200. And the researchers found that, of those who’d sell their credentials to an outsider, nearly half would do it for less.

This willingness to sell on information likely stems from a lack of understanding about the true value of data – and the damage it can do to both organisations and individuals if it falls into the wrong hands.”
