The company has determined less than one per cent of the 12 million customers using its consumer solutions were affected, which could mean thousands of people.

Yeah but those employess were Saudis,, there's always going to be spying done by insiders

But how can you protect against an employee going bad? At some level you have to trust your employees and you can only limit what they have access to.

Wowwwww That's cray cray

Least privilege and all that. At some point you have to trust people to be able to do their job. Spotting unusual is hard....

Tbh I'm not surprised at all. Internal security is usually shockingly lacking even in huge IT companies.

Yeah but does anyone drink their own coolaid? Never seen a working DLP, apart from the time that it false positives cause you are trying to send your phone number to someone... useless
