How COVID led to a dramatic spike of insider threat incidents

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

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
