While organizations must take steps to protect their data from external threat actors, they must also not overlook internal privileged actors. For example, we've probably all heard about the Joel Greenberg scandal, but one more interesting accusation that hasn't gotten much press is an allegation by an IT contractor working for Greenberg. He claims he was asked by Greenberg to participate in a plot to install ransomware on the tax office computers and collect $500,000 in bitcoin from the county. So, the Seminole County Tax Collector wanted to ransom the same office he worked for.
