2 Company insiders, employees, contractors, vendors, etc…consitute the greatest risk: Risky Internet Behavior Unsolicited email attachments Divulge proprietary information Introduce wireless risks to corp. networks Neglect security in their daily activities Intentional and unintentional activities that put sensitive company information at risk. The Threat - People

3 85% of companies and Govt. Agencies have experienced breaches ($59 Billion per yr.) (NSI) 75% of security breaches are insiders (NCIX) 59% of employees leaving a company admit to taking proprietary information with them (FBI) Industry SCRs up 600% since 2009 (DSS) 800 insider threat cases-majority of subjects took the information within the last 30 days of employment (CERT; Carnegie Mellon) The Threat - People

4 Security attacks increasing with the economic downturn – Data breaches increased 50% in past 2 yrs (ITRC) 2013 – Insiders incidents have overtaken computer viruses as the most frequent reported type of security incident. The Threat - People

5 Common gateways to hacker attacks, information theft, viruses and other incidents: –Carelessness with passwords –Opening unexpected email attachments –Ignorance about wireless/mobile devices risk –Naiveté’ towards social engineers contact and questions –Laptop loss due to theft or carelessness –Cavalier attitude towards security policy and procedures Employee Behavior doesn’t have to be Malicious to be dangerous

6 Employee understands the value of company’s information assets and the consequences if compromised. Security perceived as synonymous with market capitalization, full employment, revenue growth, increased profits and market expansion – Employees accept responsibility as owners of the enterprise Education/Training raises employee awareness and provides critical knowledge and skills to counter the growing threat. Unintentional Insider Solution – Education/Awareness Program

11 Policy-Program Development Communications High Risk Employee List Enhanced Monitoring Investigations Case Escalation Reporting Insider Threat Program

12 The same conditions apply for other insider crimes: embezzlement, sabotage and procurement fraud. –An opportunity to commit the crime –A motive or need to be satisfied through the crime –An ability to overcome natural inhibitions to criminal behavior. (moral values, loyalty, fear) –A trigger that sets the betrayal in motion Preconditions for Insider Betrayal

13 Personal Indicators Loyalty Indicators Technology Indicators Performance Indicators Foreign Influence Indicators Security Indicators Risk Indicators

14 The individual who can preserve a calm outward demeanor while their private life descends into a pit! They never present themselves for help knowing that their careers would be over. Self-interest and talent – smart enough to prevent incriminating matters from becoming public. (Usual security checks are not effective) My Major Concern

15 Better profiling and detection tools Promote conditions that reduce the motivation to engage in insider activity before there is anything to detect. Build mechanisms that create safe exits for troubled insiders before they engage in malicious activity. Termination procedures that protect the company. The Future

16 Security IS Human Resources Compliance Legal Risk Executive Management Corporate Teamwork
