Identifying and Mitigating the New Insider Threat
Anna Delaney – Executive Editor, ISMG / Richard Cassidy – Senior Director, Strategy EMEA, Exabeam
Insider threats are on the rise. However, it’s no longer just about the occasional distracted or disgruntled employee. The unprecedented and rapid deployment of remote-working solutions, triggered by the pandemic, has left several organizations unprepared to monitor or detect insider threats, whether it’s employees, contractors or third parties.
The distracted and disgruntled employees still remain, of course. However, the stress of the pandemic and uncertain economic times have exacerbated the threat, manyfold. A combination of unsecured networks and personal devices, weak passwords and insufficient authentication methods, as well as employees misusing or circumventing corporate networks all cultivate fertile ground for the insider threat – whether unintentional or intentional.
So, how do you identify and manage the insider risk in this new and turbulent environment?
How do you gain visibility of the increased attack surface and keep track of all the new data points? Why do traditional approaches to identifying insider threats fall short? What new approaches to identifying and mitigating the insider threat can organizations adopt in their strategies?
Please join ISMG’s Anna Delaney for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on the challenges of identifying and protecting against insider threats in the “new normal”.
Discussion topics will include:
- What are the new risks created by remote working that create the perfect terrain for insider threats – intentional or unintentional – to thrive?
- What tools do you employ to gain visibility into the teams dispersed across your broad environment?
- What processes and technologies do you employ to reduce the risk of insider threat?
- How do you create an effective insider risk strategy?
Joining Anna to provide expert insight and case studies is Richard Cassidy, Senior Director, Strategy, EMEA, at Exabeam.
