Remove the risk

Insider threats are a real threat in organizations where users have too much access to systems or data. Arguably the best known case of malicious insider attack is the NSA data breach, when contractor Edward Snowden obtained logins for a number of NSA employees in his role as systems administrator, and then leaked the agency secrets.

Removing admin rights is often cited as the single biggest improvement you can make in improving security, but balancing user freedom is a challenge that many businesses struggle to get right.
