Slide content:Threats to Security Insider Accidental disclosure Curiosity Malicious/subornation Outsider Organized crime Hacktivists Cyber thieves 10
Slide notes:There are many different threats to security. According to the 2015 HIMSS Survey, sixty-four percent of breaches were from external sources, and fifty-four percent were from internal sources. Outsider threats may be from organized crime, hacktivists, cyber thieves, and overseas hackers. When attacks originate from overseas, little can be done legally. The three most common attacks are spear phishing (when an email appears to be from a legitimate business but is actually from a hacker), Trojans (when malware or spyware is disguised as legitimate software), and malvertising . Insider threats and breaches may be from careless insiders who accidentally disclose or access information, the curious insider who accesses information, or the malicious insider who is a disgruntled or dissatisfied employee who accesses information inappropriately. 10
