Inside the insider threats

World-leading expert on cyber security human factors
Redacted Firm

Ever since the Trojan Horse the bad guys have understood that it is easier to attack once you’re on the inside.  Today, this can mean being virtually inside as well as physically.    While companies have significantly increased their spending on cyber security, the best technology cannot prevent your employees from knowingly or unknowingly sharing their credentials, falling victim to social engineering attacks, being impersonated or succumbing to blackmail.  Join this session to learn more about why nearly all successful cyber-attacks have an insider element and what you can do to combat this threat. You will leave this session with a greater understanding of why seemingly loyal employees can become malicious insiders and why all of us are susceptible to social engineering attacks. Dr Jessica Barker will also advise on the human and technical measures you can take to better-protect your organisation.
