When security leaders picture insider threats to their organization, they tend to imagine malicious individuals that want to harm the business. But that’s not always the case.

Increasingly, the biggest risk to a company’s security is the “accidental” insider threat.

Accidental insider threats represent ordinary employees that by-pass your security protocols. And in most cases, these are well-intentioned workers that just want to do their jobs.

Yet these individuals can create serious risks for your organization.

In this conversation, LifeRaft’s Director of Information Security and Privacy Suofagha Kiakubu discusses how leaders can address these accidental insider threats, the downsides of compliance driven education programs, and how to build a “security aware” culture across the entire organization.

In this episode you will learn:

  • What security leaders need to know about accidental insider threats
  • How strict rules and protocols can actually increase the risk of security incidences
  • What your colleagues in other departments probably aren’t telling you
  • Why just “ticking the boxes” with compliance-driver security programs falls short
  • How to build a “security awareness” culture across your organization
  • How to create security training programs your colleagues will love
  • The future of cybersecurity: the three biggest trends to watch over the next 10 years
