Edward Snowden provided a clear example of what can happen, even for some of the most security conscious organizations like the NSA, when the insider threat is not taken seriously. Simply put, Snowden was able to collect, extract and disseminate highly classified national security information primarily based on the trust that was provided. Just as with many corporate employees, there is a high sense of trust in which access is granted to some of the company's most valued information assets- including intellectual property, legal and financial files. While the vast majority of employees are loyal and trustworthy, every company still needs to be capable of defending against the potential rogue employee or contractor who is highly motivated and has access to the "crown jewels."
Our panel of experienced specialist will discuss the leading practices that make them vulnerable to the insider threat and emerging solutions that provide proactive monitoring and detection of risky personnel.
