Insider data breaches set to increase due to remote work shift

A third (33%) of all data breach incidents in 2021 are expected to be caused by insiders, according to the latest Forrester Cyber Security Predictions report.

This will be an 8% increase compared to 2020. The increase in insider incidents is likely to be caused by the unprecedented change in working environments from the office to remote working during nationwide lockdowns. Other contributing issues outlined by Forrester include the ease with which data can be moved as well as the general fear of being made redundant.
