The report reveals effective cyber security strategies are being threatened as workforces move away from traditional working locations and hours.


Cyber insecurity: Managing threats from within is an Economist Intelligence Unit report, sponsored by Proofpoint. To explore the frequency and severity of people-centric data breaches, the EIU surveyed more than 300 corporate executives, including CIOs, CISOs and other IT executives, finance and line-of-business leaders, with roughly equal numbers located in North America, Europe and Asia/Pacific.

The EIU supplemented the survey results with in-depth interviews with senior executives. We would like to thank all survey respondents for their time and insights. Eric Laursen wrote the report and Gilda Stahl was the editor.

The following senior executives (listed alphabetically by company) were interviewed for the research programme:

  • Adrian Ludwig, CISO, Atlassian
  • Deborah Wheeler, CISO, Delta Air Lines
  • Prasanna Ramakrishnan, global head of information security risk, Signify (previously Philips Lighting)
