Event Synopsis:

Today's growing number of insider threats, which involve exfiltrating data, sabotaging and manipulating corporate data and IT systems, have created more complex set of challenges for U.S. companies compared to those arising from cyber security and data breaches.

Insiders can be grouped into three types — accidental, compromised and malicious. Typical influences on users’ intent in handling sensitive data include work environment, the ability to handle stress and financial situation. And because people can move in and out of these categories at any given time, it’s easy to see how the following behaviors can describe the same person, depending upon their actions, on any given day.

In this live Webcast, a notable panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the framework of insider threats. Speakers will also present key pointers, legal insights and important issues surrounding this significant topic.

Key topics include:

· Current Insider Threat Landscape
· Insider Threat Definition & Characteristics
· The Malicious vs. Non-Malicious Insider Threat
· Building an Effective Insider Threat Program
· Identifying Policies, Guidance, and Procedures
· Legal Considerations & Global Privacy Implications
· Lessons Learned & Best Practices
