This paper is about file sharing applied to the insider threat problem. We propose a new approach for classifying the insider threat problem and focus on one category that is related to file sharing. We characterise the protection required by the shared files against different types of insiders. We also characterise file sharing based on two factors: how and with whom files might be shared.
