  • Modes of Ethical Hacking - Insider Attack

    An insider attack is intended to mimic the actions that may be undertaken by internal employees or parties who have authorized access to a system. In many cases this kind of attack is often carried out by a disgruntled employee attempting to get revenge and sometimes out of greed. It is very difficult to discover and mitigate these kinds of attack before the damage has been done.

    This kid of attack may also be done by a competitor that wishes to spy or steal trade secrets or cause damage to a competing business. The attacker will in this case look for job openings, prepare the attacker to increase chance of successfully getting a job at the competitor business and then collect classified information.
