Ex-employee threats to business
A disgruntled former system administrator at a US paper and packing manufacturing company was recently sentenced to 34 months in prison for causing the company $1.1 million worth of losses.

His network accesses were not revoked when he was fired in 2014, enabling him to establish a VPN connection to the industrial plant. Through this, he was able to send commands over a two-week period that caused 'significant damage to Georgia-Pacific and its operations'. Open source suggests that he may have modified Industrial Control Systems pertaining to a quality checking process, which it appears hindered production.
