Such paranoia is all the more strong at the higher levels of management as these executives are having access to highly sensitive and confidential information of the company. They can be a soft target for the hackers and unscrupulous elements who intend to harm the company. Sometimes it is the competitors who are involved in shady business of directly or indirectly hacking websites and stealing information. Sometimes they hire professional hackers to do the job.
