Best of GSX+ 2020: Insider Threat
Insider threats are evolving rapidly in response to workforce changes due to the pandemic. How can your organization respond? This Best of GSX package contains 5 recordings that review the latest trends and threats and explain mitigation strategies.
This package includes:
Insider Threats in a Borderless Work Environment
In today's world, employees more frequently are working from home, at an off-site location, or on the road. While beneficial to an organization's bottom-line, this perimeter-less workspace creates new digital fence lines with new vulnerabilities across digital, physical, and human domains. These new threats pose long-term risk to organizations and make traditional mitigation approaches obsolete. To properly respond, organizations need creative ways to gauge the behavioral stressors, perceptions, associations, plans, intentions, and actions of remote workers. Likewise, they need new ways to protect sensitive data, from creation to consumption to destruction. By reviewing a case study that illustrates best practices, learn new lessons on how to navigate the borderless insider risk domain.

Global Insider Risk: A Self-Assessment Tool
All organizations--regardless of their size, industry, or region--must recognize the scale of harm they might experience from an insider attack. In 2019, the petroleum industry in Norway established a project to identify best practices for insider risk mitigation. As a result, a report and self-assessment tool was developed based on international best practices. Explore how the self-assessment can be used, review 50 recommended security measures, and address some of the challenges the industry faced when implementing the measures.

Insider Threat Mitigation
On a global scale, the average time to detect, identify, and contain an insider data breach was 279 days in 2018, costing an average of $3.9 million. For organizations with more than 25,000 employees, the average cost of an insider breach was $5.1 million, which amounts to $204 per employee. The consequences for a small organization with 500 to 1,000 employees are significantly greater - the average cost was $2.6 million or $3,533 per employee. Explore four primary principles of an effective insider threat program along with case studies, best practices, and options that demonstrate how the four principles interact.
