The alleged factory sabotage at Tesla has definitely stolen the insider threats highlights reel for 2018 so far. News broke via the leak of a company email from CEO Elon Musk, who alleges a trusted insider was deliberately sabotaging software systems that control the car company's manufacturing processes. Now that spin is being countered by claims from the employee that he was actually whistleblowing questionable manufacturing policies. Either way, security pros are asking why better controls weren't in place to keep an insider from abusing his privileges so egregiously.
