Ever since people first betrayed the trust placed in them, insiders have posed a threat. From Brutus in Roman times to Volkswagen more recently, and for high-profile individuals such as Edward Snowden to busy staff who misaddress emails, examples abound So why is the insider threat receiving so much attention?

This briefing paper equips ISF Members to combat the insider threat by:

  • broadening the discussion to three types of risky insider behaviour: malicious, negligent and accidental
  • describing the importance of trust and the central role it plays extending technical and management controls
  • suggesting actions for immediate results and additional actions to sustain those results.
