The biggest threat is not the small percentage of insiders doing 90% of the damage? What kind of math is that?
After many years of being in business, my math has become "creative" but not this creative.

It just makes sense that those who are trusted are in position to do the most damage...and most likely to have a festering reason for doing so...

This finding, of course, should be considered in light of the fact that insiders are adept at keeping their activities secret.
In other words "Our data show that outsiders do most of the damage, but we aren't sure we can trust our data."
