Insider Threats – a People Problem in a High-Tech World
According to studies by CERT, Verizon and the Ponemon Institute, Insiders are responsible for the lions share of data leakage and identity theft incidents.
The idea that our colleagues and employees might “go rogue” is unsettling and difficult to face. However, recent events have highlighted the very real threats posed by insiders and the economic, reputational, and even physical damage that can occur as a result. Even with all the attention being paid in the media and information security community to the insider threat, very few solutions seem to be available.
This session will begin with a presentation drawing on fact rather than perpetuating fear to develop a mitigation plan for the insider threat. Following the presentation, we will engage in a group discussion about specific remedies that can be applied in a call center environment. Notes on the discussion will be captured in a mind map which will be made available to attendees.
This topic is timely and provides practical strategies you can apply right away to protect your organization's digital assets!
