It's Russian Collusion.

But not the sort you're thinking of. Read this story about a Russian hacker arrested over the weekend for conspiring with gas station employees to install his malware that scammed customers of up to 7% more per fill-up, stealing several hundred million rubles (FYI: Today's exchange rate for 100,000,000 rubles is around $1,800,000).

It's increasingly difficult to protect against the inside threat of malicious employees, but proper infrastructure monitoring is critical to preventing it or at least limiting the damage. The article states that the malware and its actions were "nearly impossible to detect", but with the right tools that seems unlikely.

Be honest. How effectively are you monitoring your vital infrastructure?
