With inside knowledge and access to sensitive data and systems, insiders can inflict significant harm through fraud, intellectual property theft, and sabotage. Because these insiders are trusted resources that require access to data and systems to do their jobs, threats can be difficult to identify and prevent. Stopping users from maliciously or inadvertently putting their organizations at risk requires defined processes, and technology tools to detect out-of-policy and anomalous user actions.
Key takeaways from the webinar will include:
•Facts on how insiders can pose substantial threats to enterprises;
•Best practices for defending against insider threats; and
•Understanding the technology tools that can detect, investigate and prevent insider threats.
"We are proud be hosting Forrester's Joe Blankenship, one of the industry's foremost experts on cybersecurity, to help demystify insider threats," said ObserveIT CEO Mike McKee. "Many enterprises now recognize that guarding against insider threats is as important, if not more important, than protecting against external threats. Our discussion will help security teams better understand this threat, and arm them with actionable information to make their organizations more secure."
