When Insider Threats Meet Sarbanes-Oxley

    Many security practitioners divide security into three distinct but related areas: external threats, internal threats and compliance. While it is fashionable to say that security doesn’t equal compliance, and compliance doesn’t equal security, one must acknowledge that there is a tremendous amount of overlap between the two. This is certainly the case when considering Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and insider threats. Insider threat and Sarbanes-Oxley share many of the same dire consequences: loss of intellectual property, compromised data, damaged or destroyed assets and severed communications, to name a few. Failure to protect sensitive data and meet regulatory requirements can destroy customer trust, spur government fines, damage stock prices and invite lawsuits.
