Insider Threat - The Enemies Within?


November 2017 

12:00 - 17:00

    The threat that insiders pose to businesses, institutions and governmental organisations continues to be of serious concern. Recent industry surveys and academic literature provide unequivocal evidence to support the significance of this threat and its prevalence. (Nurse et al 2014). The vast majority of employees, staff and contractors working within and alongside businesses are honest and act with integrity, however there is growing evidence that there is a significant risk to organisations arising from insiders with access operating in positions of trust.

    The government Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure warns; Almost all physical and electronic attacks can be assisted or conducted by an insider. There are some attacks that can only be committed by insiders, such as the unauthorised release of proprietary information, or the sabotage of assets that only employees can access. In addition, there are some tactics that insiders are likely to use in the course of preparing or conducting their attacks; these include manipulation (deliberate attempts to acquire information or access by manipulating staff). (CPNI 2013). 

    This briefing presented by CSARN will provide delegates with an understanding of the threat that is presented by potentially dishonest or inadvertent members of staff, strategies to mitigate the risk and responses to incidents that may occur.
