Insider Threat Protection Market by Component, Enterprise Size, Industry Vertical & Region | Forecast 2023 to 2033

Global Insider Threat Protection Market Outlook (2023 to 2033)

The global insider threat protection market is anticipated to reach US$ 3,580.57 million by 2023. According to its valuation, it is expected to reach a value of US$ 19,550 million in 2033. A CAGR of 18.5% is predicted for the global market from 2023 to 2033. Rapid change is happening in the landscape of insider threat protection, and organizations need to stay at the forefront of that change to keep their data secure. It is therefore imperative that they have a keen sense of anticipating future demands and opportunities to do this.

Every organization's security strategy must include insider threat protection. An organization's critical systems, data, and personnel are protected from malicious actors who use authorized access to compromise them. Since insider threats originate from within an organization, they present a tough challenge for organizations to address. Malicious insiders can be prevented through software monitoring tools, user access controls, and password policies that demand strong passwords. As part of the strategy, active detection, mitigation, and employee training have also been implemented, along with investigations and post-incident forensics. A potential insider threat has become a reality in the digital age for organizations of all sizes. Malicious insiders are always a risk. To reduce the threat of harm from insiders and associated costs, organizations need to implement an effective insider threat protection strategy.

The SANS survey of advanced threats conducted in 2019 revealed that there was a lack of visibility over the misuse of insiders by over one-third of respondents. Thus, it is imperative to deploy tools that are capable of continuously monitoring user activity all the time, as well as aggregating and correlating information about user activity from multiple sources. Distancing users from wayward behavior is more prudent and cheaper than detecting insider threats. This includes promoting a security-aware culture change and transforming the organization digitally. Employees and other stakeholders will be provided with regular security training and awareness programs. Identifying early warning signals of dissatisfaction and handling them quickly is crucial to identifying early warning signals of dissatisfaction.

According to Ponemon's "2020 Cost of Insider Threats" study, 60% of organizations have more than 30 incidents involving insiders every year. Approximately 62 percent of the incidents reported by insiders were caused by negligence. There has been an increase of 47 percent in the number of incidents related to insiders in the past two years. In recent years, companies have spent on average $755,760 every time an insider-related incident occurred. The issue of monitoring and detecting insider threats is one of the major challenges organizations face. Organizations need to take traditional security measures, but these measures are often insufficient to fully protect them from insider threats. Insider threats can be detected and addressed more accurately and quickly by organizations that use advanced technologies like machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Additionally, organizations should implement data access control measures so that sensitive information remains protected from unauthorized disclosure by allowing only authorized personnel to have access to this information. By implementing such measures, the risk of sensitive information being accessed accidentally or maliciously by authorized individuals can be minimized. The organization should also explore ways to reduce the severity of insider threats in addition to monitoring and data access control. The measures include educating and training employees, implementing a security culture and training programs, and improving contractor and employee screening.

Emerging technologies can help organizations better protect themselves against insider threats. AI-driven analytics, automated threat detection, and quantum computing are possible avenues for organizations to explore. Threat detection and detection of potentially malicious activity can be accomplished significantly more quickly with such technologies. A new era of insider threat protection is on the horizon, and this is a very promising development. Organizations can ensure their data remains safe by proactively anticipating future needs and opportunities. To gain a competitive edge, a company can take advantage of the combination of traditional security measures and innovative, cutting-edge technology.
