Insiders have something outside threat actors never will: trust. They’ve surpassed the challenge of external security defenses and can navigate sensitive internal resources with breakneck speed.

Today, 60% of attacks are carried out by insiders (IBM Cyber Security Intelligence Index), and the average cost of this type of breach is $8.76m (Ponemon Institute).

Unfortunately, many teams aren’t equipped to act quickly to detect and stop these incidents before it’s too late.

In this webinar, we will explore the top motives of insider threats and outline how organizations can determine the right countermeasures to stop both accidental and malicious insider threats in their tracks.

Key takeaways:

  • The top seven most common insider threat focus areas, from accidental leaks to espionage
  • What motivates these insider threat actors
  • The risks of each type of insider threat
  • Real-world examples of these threats in action
  • Countermeasures to defend against each type of threat
