Overcoming the insider
Abstract: Employee computer crime represents a substantial threat
for organisations. Yet information security researchers and practitioners
currently lack a clear understanding of how these crimes are perpetrated,
which, as a consequence, hinders security efforts. We argue that recent
developments in criminology can assist in addressing the insider threat.
More specifically, we demonstrate how an approach, entitled Situational
Crime Prevention, can not only enhance an understanding of employee
computer crime, but also strengthen security practices which are designed
to address this problem.
