While businesses are often aware of external threats perpetrated by cybercriminals looking to make a quick buck or competitors that want to play dirty, many forget that internal threats also pose a great risk to the safety and security of the organization and its personnel.

These threats come in many forms — theft, fraud, cybercrime, and workplace violence — and oftentimes, management fails to notice the warning signs and acts too late.

According to Tom Miller, CEO of risk management, analytics and compliance firm ClearForce, disengaged, violent, or criminal employees are grown, not hired.

This means that most employees who would later go on to become a threat to their workplaces had no intention of doing so when they joined.
