Cyber Beat Live: I'm In! When insiders threaten our security


How does your organization work to prevent insider threats? Listen as leading cybersecurity experts discuss the following questions while describing how companies can reorient their security posture to thrive in an age in which trust seems inadequate:

• How much damage could an insider do?
• How can we avoid hiring employees who are likely to pose an insider threat? What indicators should we look for? Are these evident in screening?
• What organizational roles are most likely to be sources of insider threat?
• How can the human resources department and the chief information security officer help prevent insider attacks?
• What are the dangers of thinking about insider threats as merely a technological problem?
• Can training alone prevent insider threats? What more can we do to mitigate insider threats?
• In an age when information can be disconcertingly easy to steal, and in which trust seems inadequate, how can we prevent insider threats?
• How can we identify and counter external cyber threats that might be linked to insiders’ internal cyber threat activities?
• What primary motivations drive people to pose an insider threat?
