Executive Summary

The 2024 Insider Risk Investigations Report is not just a platform for understanding the insider risk landscape. It is an invitation to uplift collaboration and best-practice information sharing with trusted allies to fortify the protective security resilience of our most important establishments.

The threat landscape has never been more precarious. Foreign state actors are doubling down, blurring the lines between cyber, physical, and psychological threats to infiltrate the critical infrastructure upon which civilians rely.

The rise of artificial intelligence has introduced a new layer of complexity, giving adversaries more opportunity to outsmart insiders and undermine the truth in pursuit of knowledge and power.

In 2024, protecting trusted insiders (and the assets and systems they are entrusted with) against foreign influence is the ‘how to’ conversation to be having and solution to be driving for.

Now more than ever, the public and private sectors must band together to accelerate capability maturity to combat espionage and IP theft.

Having a robust insider risk program is critical, but it is not enough.

The trick lies in collaboration and a sharing of the minds under one trusted alliance. This will set the scene for security, prosperity, and success – now and for decades to come.
