Firewalls are great, but what about internal threats?

Forbes currently has a blog post writen by Ben Kerschberg, who explores the topic of breaches. In researching the post, Kerschberg interviewed Nick Nikols Quest Software's VP and GM of the Identity, Security and Windows Management. The post goes into the question that many organizations either aren't asking, or only ask after something happens: what about my employees who are already behind the the firewall? The reality is that most organizations have very few measures in place to prevent any wrong doing because they trust their employees. They already work there so why worry about a breach from someone inside the organization? Well sadly, reality is not always kind and Kerschberg explores the data security and identity and access management practices organizations can take to better secure and achieve compliance within their environments.
