Two Cybersecurity Experts Share Their Secrets to an Effective Insider Threats Program
While cybercriminals, hacktivists, and ransomware often make a big splash in the news headlines, the reality is that the biggest security threat is often right in front of you.
Insiders — people already in your organization — pose a pervasive security risk, whether their behavior is malicious or accidental. A McAfee report found that insiders are responsible for 43% of all data loss, and according to the Ponemon Institute, data breaches caused by insiders are increasing in frequency and cost.
Watch this webinar hosted by Austin Whipple, senior security architect at BetterCloud, and Carlos Batista, VP of security at BetterCloud. They discuss why insider threats are one of the top security concerns for all organizations. In addition to offering tips and guidance on how to implement a robust insider threats program, they cover best practices for keeping sensitive data safe. They also share an exclusive preview of the findings from our 2018 Insider Threats Survey (stay tuned for the full research report in February).
