Authorization
For insider threats; in addition to authentication one can apply authorization strategies so not everybody gets everything but only what they need. That may minimize the threat.

Wonderful Story about Patton
During the 1930s he was taking a night walk around his command with an aide when they came upon a sentry.  (Call that the sentry the firewall).  While Patton watched in the dark, the aide came to the sentry and asked "Soldier, where you do expect trouble to come from?"   The sentry saluted, turned and pointed INSIDE the compound.  Astonished, the aide asked "Why?"  The sentry quickly responded " Sir, you asked where trouble would come from - that is different fron where the enemy would come from.  I know sir that if I failed to do my job, the commanding officer of the post (pointed inside) would come at me with a ton of trouble.  Sir"  Patton roared with laughter and said "Don't bother that man anymore, he knows how to do his job."

Spoiler alert
@Orion: Great minds think alike: This analogy is exactly what has been on my mind this season with Arya and her storylines, and I've remarked on the same when watching the show.

(It's been even more on my mind of late with recent events and possible theories as to what last episode's events might possibly be building up to.)
