Internal Hackers

When you ask people to rate the impact on their organisation of an internal hacker, they often say medium to low and when asked about the probability, it is usually low. Yet all the evidence says that when an internal attack occurs the impact, because of the inside knowledge, is in fact high. In the case of Societe Generale where the hacking was internal the impact was very high, but not yet as high as Barings. No wonder organised crime aims to place its own on the inside of financial organisations.
