Protecting Your Organization from Insider Threats

Course Description

In today’s information-centric environment, protecting organizational data from deliberate or unintentional disclosure is paramount. While most organizations are focused on protecting their critical assets and data from external threats, they may be overlooking the very real threats originating from inside their organization. Whether a disclosure is malicious or unintentional, insiders have the potential to cause severe financial and reputational harm to an organization.

This course will provide a foundational understanding of the Insider Threat and how organizations can protect themselves from that threat. Discussions and hands-on activities will provide participants with the tools and knowledge to design and implement an effective Insider Threat program tailored to their organization.
