IT staff seen as more dangerous than hackers


More thoughts from Alan Wheatley:

The content of the linked news item 'Staff more dangerous than hackers'
does not surprise me.

As an example, I have read or heard it said that the banks that go in
for 'off-shoring' of their data processing -- -- are going
in for false savings; the poorly paid staff overseas are not exactly
paid for their loyalty and may more readily succumb to selling
customers' account details.

Perhaps it should be pointed out to IT security managers that better pay
terms and conditions promotes mutual goodwill?
