Malicious Insiders: A Bigger Threat than Ransomware


I think Spire's customers could benefit from a detailed blog post describing insider threats and showing how Rapid7's UBA technology gives visibility into compromised credential attacks. Ransomware remains a top concern for most IT security executives, so I'd like to make a direct comparison between the two threats. The main argument is this that it's much easier for a well-prepared organization to mitigate ransomware attack than an insider threat, yet few IT leaders prepare adequately for both.
