Addressing the Security Risks of Negligent Insiders

All workplaces share the same security threat: the well-meaning but careless employee who may be more focused on productivity than protecting the company’s sensitive or confidential information. Often, without thinking of the potential consequences, they leave confidential documents in plain view, share passwords, circumvent security procedures and transfer sensitive data to the public cloud without company approval – ultimately costing much more to your organization’s bottom line than the employee hoped to save in time. IT professionals agree that more security incidents are caused by negligence than malicious acts.

In this webinar, Dr Larry Ponemon of the Ponemon Institute and Michael Crouse, Director of Insider Threat Strategies, Raytheon | Websense, will discuss findings of the 2015 survey The Unintentional Insider Risk in the United States and German Organizations. Steven Furnell, Professor of IT Security at Plymouth University will offer his insight into the research and the subject in general.

Topics for discussion include:  

  • How much unintentional security incidents are costing your organization 
  • Which employees are most likely to cause an unintentional insider breach 
  • What you can do about it
