The Insider Threat: Enhancing Data Stewardship to Protect Your Information Assets
Tuesday June 13th, 2017
1:00PM - 2:00PM EST
Study after study and recent highly publicized data security breaches demonstrate that negligent and malicious insiders – employees, contractors, and other business partners – are the number one threat to an organization’s information assets. This “insider threat” is as much an IT problem as it is a “people problem.”
In this one hour webinar, we will provide practical recommendations for identifying, responding to and preventing potential insider threats through enhanced training, policies, process and technology. You will learn how to:
Initiate a culture of data stewardship within your organization that recognizes the risks of the insider threat.
Limit the amount and level of access to confidential information and systems.
Implement strong monitoring processes to detect suspicious activity.
Bring in-house counsel, HR professionals and information security personnel together to build a culture that addresses those risks.
Strengthen that culture so it touches every stage of the employment life cycle, breaks down silos within your organization and secures the data assets you are trusted to protect.
Philip Gordon, co-chair of Littler Mendelson’s Privacy and Background Checks Practice Group, and Greg Michaels, Associate Managing Director in Kroll’s Cyber Security and Investigations Group, will lead the webinar and share their expertise on the insider threat and the best practices you can implement to fight it.
