How to implement policies and controls to mitigate insider threats

External attackers can compromise systems in hours or even minutes, while it can take months for organizations to detect intrusions. Since insiders have fewer barriers to overcome and compromises don’t require circumventing controls, it can take months or years for the threat to be discovered.

Therefore, rogue partners, careless contractors and negligent (or malicious) employees can seriously disrupt your organization.

In Verizon’s Insider Threat Report, learn more about insider threats including:

  • The risks and potential abuses associated with privileged access
  • The motivations and methods of internal threat actors
  • How to implement policies and controls to mitigate insider threats
