Six clicks: How hackers use employees to break through security walls

Quote:
No one wants to think about the idea of their company's customer data, infrastructure, IP or network security as the full-time target for hired-gun hackers, government spies or crime syndicates around the world.

Unfortunately, it's true. Your most vulnerable point of attack is often the people you trust the most: your employees.

By the standards of today's black market for thieves, your employees are in the crosshairs for some of the most serious attacks on your company. A new report from RAND Corporation "Markets for Cybercrime Tools and Stolen Data" (commissioned by Juniper Networks) explains that in addition to unpatched vulnerabilities, the human element will continue to increase as the weak point for attacks.

Updates, you can do. Vulnerabilities can be patched. But people... are people.
