As those millennials hop from job to job, they take their mobile devices with them and (thanks to the bring-your-own-device trend) those smartphones and tablets are being used to connect to social media, download apps with security flaws, visit malware-infested websites and generally put their employers’ data at risk.
Bear in mind the fact that millennials consider it completely normal to change jobs four times before the age of 32, with a notable minority now having more than one employer at a time.
That generation – born roughly between 19 – today makes up an increasingly large part of the workforce.
Whether you see it or not, data exfiltration is a real risk for most organisations.’ In its wide-reaching global survey (representing 1 155 organisations around the world), Mc Afee found that nearly half of serious data breach incidents are perpetuated by ‘internal actors’.

In 2016, an astounding 3.2 million debit cards were compromised in an attack on India’s major banks. That part of the attack is more visible, compromising machines and triggering events and alarms in the security operations centre.
Until now, there has been very little information available on the less visible act of data exfiltration: how attackers are removing data. In March 2014, the British supermarket saw the personal details of its entire 100 000-strong workforce published online – including payroll data.
‘Spotting cybersecurity incidents arising from within a company can be particularly tricky because the perpetrator may have legitimate access – and in this case, they did,’ Luke Brown, vice-president/GM (Europe, Middle East, Africa, India and LATAM) at security firm Digital Guardian told ITPortal. There are numerous technologies out there designed to spot insider threats, and small investments can go a long way.
