Today, 53% of organizations have experienced an insider cybercrime incident, up significantly from 41% in 2004. Despite this upshot, one-third of organizations still have no formalized response plan. Many are still more focused on keeping up with external threats to protect assets rather than dealing with their own privileged users. In order to detect and prevent internal user incidents, tech departments need the support of their leadership to do what those plant managers did in the 1950s: Watch. Audit. Intervene. Prevent. However, what’s happening is organizations are frequently shirking off the potential for disaster, leaving them vulnerable to internal user-inflicted systems compromise (whether intentionally caused or not). Michael Crouse, Director of Insider Threat Strategies at Raytheon Cyber Products, will draw on a decade of experience to discuss what works and what does not work – and the future of effective insider threat mitigation. From this session, attendees will learn tactics organizations have used to block the insider, what has worked, what hasn’t and how to get a step ahead of the insider to protect your organization.
