Special Presentation Topic: The Insider Threat


Managing risk in today’s business environments requires a good understanding of the threats which exist outside our organizations but also those that exist within. The Insider Threat is composed of both intentional and non-intentional actors and accounts for approximately 40% of the data breaches and almost 80% of the thefts of intellectual property which occur within our organizations. Understanding your organization’s risk and having some common sense tools to mitigate it, is the first step to developing a successful Insider Threat strategy.
