Web Conference Overview:

Insiders, by virtue of legitimate access to their organizations’ information and IT infrastructure, pose a significant risk to employers. Employees, motivated by financial problems, greed, revenge, the desire to obtain a business advantage, or the wish to impress a new employer, have stolen confidential data, proprietary information, or intellectual property from their employers. Furthermore, investigations reveal that stolen credentials and SQL injection attacks were implicated in over 90% of data breaches, allowing cyber criminals to exploit trusted relationships within the organization to perpetrate their attacks.

Our speakers will discuss the escalating risk of insider threat as well as strategies and solutions your organization should consider.

For each type of crime, a "crime profile” will be presented which describes who committed the crimes, their motivation, organizational issues surrounding the incidents, methods of carrying out the attacks, impacts, and precursors that could have served as indicators to the organization in preventing the incident or detecting it earlier.
