Hackers aren’t always unknown individuals from outside an organization. Sometimes, they’re fellow employees.
Insider threats can be co-workers, former employees or anyone who works within an organization. Using access and knowledge of internal computer systems, these threats can compromise an organization’s online security.
Even trusted employees could pose a threat.
The CyberSafe at USPS team considers insider threats among the most dangerous types of hackers.
The team reminds employees that they are the first line of defense for detecting and protecting USPS from insider threats.
To safeguard USPS, report suspicious activity to the CyberSecurity Operations Center.
