Insider Threat Management
As organizations grapple with the need to safeguard employees, transition to a remote working model, or maintain business continuity, the risk of security breaches are at an all-time high. The rate of attacks on employees working from home has increased substantially as adversaries take advantage of a weaker security posture and overextended security teams. In this uncertain climate employees are more at risk of accidentally compromising their systems through a malicious link or exfiltrating controlled data.
In this discussion we will look at some of the most common methods by which an insider can knowingly, or unknowingly, compromise a company’s security posture and how to take steps towards mitigating such a risk. We will give an overview of insider threat, how the landscape evolved within the context of a remote workforce, and what steps organizations can take while maintaining employee confidence and privacy.

The ultimate goal is to familiarize the audience with the process of penetration testing whether they are looking to perform themselves or hiring a third party.
