What does all of this mean when you put it into context? If we can just solve for the small minority of users making the majority of unintentional errors, we could drastically improve our organization’s security posture. But this hasn’t happened.
Year after year, we see the same statistics citing unintentional human error as the leading cybersecurity risk for organizations—but our mitigation approach hasn’t kept up.
One-size-fits-all risk mitigation strategies won’t hold up when it’s just a few people that need more of our attention. This isn’t to say that we’ll ever fully get rid of unintentional insider risk, but putting safeguards in place at the individual level can make all the difference.
