Your organization’s private, sensitive, and mission-critical information is increasingly coming under attack—from within.
The possibility of insider threats—that is, actions by employees who either maliciously or carelessly circumvent security controls—are on the rise, fueled by innovative technologies, new methods of communication, an evolving socioeconomic climate, and geopolitical changes.
Ensuring the safety of critical resources is every executive’s job. What is your organization doing to protect the people, property, and resources it is responsible for? New standards and expectations from the government, including the National Insider Threat Task Force, will continue to evolve as leading practices are identified. To meet these new insider threat requirements, organizations will need to transform their security, privacy, and continuity controls, while maintaining the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of critical business functions. As a start, organizations can take a number of immediate steps to assess and lessen their vulnerability to insider- threat risks.
