The COVID-19 pandemic has created an environment in which malicious insiders can thrive.

With everyone working from home, security teams often no longer have the controls to detect suspicious activities. And less supervision provides more opportunities to undermine their organizations.

In this episode of the LifeRaft Physical Security Podcast, Alan Saquella, CPP explains how COVID led to a dramatic spike in the number of insider threat incidents. 

He also shares:

  • How to protect your organization from remote insider threats
  • The low-tech solution for detecting malicious insiders
  • The number one mistake security teams make when addressing insider threats

Correction: In this episode, we described Alan Saquella as an adjunct faculty professor of Security and Intelligence at Embry–Riddle Aeronautical University. He’s now a full-time professor.
