Silos , competing objectives, and comment sense
You've got to love it when competing objectives trump what's best for the organization, and customers. It ends up costing everyone $$ in the end. Cybercriminals and hackers love it, though, as it simplifies their efforts.  Banish these people to positions where they get to ask, "will that burger be for here or to go?" craig kensek

Embracing 2FA and MFA
Helping isolate "friendly fire" (employee) intrusion from activity based on stolen credentials can be done rapidly by implementing 2FA or MFA.  Mult-factor authentication gets lots of groans, whether it's due to added costs or added time; there's a strange belief that having to enter more than two credentials, including add-ons like pins delivered by mobile device or token hardware.  But in the end these extra layers of security are going to save money, especially from the perspective of resource hours and insurance, when you consider how many intrusions occur every day under current security models.  Granted it's not perfect but all the same, I'd bet on a more secure environment with these models in place and then focus on intrusions either from friendly fire, or other avenues not based on illegal logins.
