What: Insider Threats and Hunting the Enemy Within

Insider threats, whether from current or former employees, contractors, or partners with access to company systems or data and who use that access maliciously or unintentionally, account for 60 percent of cyberattacks.

Insider threats are difficult to detect, and in many cases, they can go unnoticed for months or years. In fact, detecting an internal threat is one of most difficult tasks for security teams in the organization. The webinar will cover the following topics:

  • Why insider threats are so dangerous
  • Technical and human factor challenges
  • How to detect and prevent malicious insider activity
  • How to keep the biggest threats to your organization at bay
