Insider Security Threats: Reducing The Risks

A high-profile news article published last week brought the risk of insider threats from current or disgruntled employees to reality. A high profile retailer suffered the loss of thousands of employee data records at the hands of an employee who has since been arrested.

This real life example and the exposure of this attack has propelled this type of threat to the forefront with a recent study by Sec-1 partner, Imperva, identifying that 70% of employees admit to accessing data which they shouldn’t.

In light of this recent news we thought you would be interested in a useful Imperva whitepaper which provides information on:

  • What is an Insider Threat?
  • The outcome of a study conducted around the effective practices when mitigating Insider Threats
  • Best Practices to mitigate against Insider Threats
