The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) National Protection and Programs Directorate/Office of Infrastructure Protection is hosting a live, 60-minute virtual roundtable designed to increase awareness of and the ability to respond to insider threats.
What: Insider Threat Awareness Virtual Roundtable
Date: presented live Tuesday, September 18, 2012
Location: Please visit INSIDER THREAT to register
Registration closes September 14, 2012.
The insider threat to critical infrastructure is one or more individuals with the access and/or inside knowledge of a company, organization or enterprise that would allow them to exploit the vulnerabilities of that entity's security, systems, services, products or facilities with the intent to cause harm.
Our subject matter expert will discuss the three types of insider threats: physical/cyber sabotage, theft of intellectual property and fraud.
To help you prepare for the possibility of an insider threat, the Insider Threat Awareness Virtual Roundtable will raise awareness of common characteristics and indicators of insider threats and help you to understand:
- What malicious insiders are and how they impact organizations;
- What an organization can do to deter and detect insider threats; and
- What defense and response strategies are available to mitigate the insider threat.
