Are employees our biggest cyber security challenge? – watch recorded IBMs Cyber Beat Live!


Research indicates that the United States feels particularly susceptible to insider threats, followed closely by England and Germany. With ever more data being created—sensitive data included—and as employees increasingly use their own devices at work, including on the cloud, companies are seemingly more susceptible to insider breaches than ever before. Tune in to this edition of Cyber Beat Live to hear leading experts describe how companies can strengthen their security posture to mitigate insider threats:

  • What do you think would be the most extensive damage done by an insider?

  • How do we avoid hiring employees who are prone to insider threat? Are there indicators we can look for? Are these be evident in screening?

  • What roles in an organization are most likely to pose insider threats?

  • How can the human resources department and the chief information security officer (CISO) help prevent insider attacks?

  • What dangers lie in thinking about insider threats as merely a technology problem?

  • Is training the answer? What else should be done to mitigate insider threats?

  • In an age when information is so easy to steal, what can we do to prevent insider threat theft when “trust” seems inadequate?

  • How can we identify and counter external cyber threats that might be linked to insiders’ internal cyber threat activities?

  • What are the primary motivations for someone to commit insider threat?

Here are a few resources to review in preparation for this discussion:
