Insiders still pose a significant threat to enterprises in addition to the rapid growth of malware and online dangers. According to Gartner, more than 70% of unauthorized data access is committed by an organization's own employees:

• Conducting cyber espionage

• Exploiting data via remote access software

• Transmitting sensitive information via e-mail and instant messaging

SA Miller joined the FBI in 2003, preceded by 11 years with the State of Florida law enforcement.
