Insider Threats and Security

As business continuity planners, and the people who have to think up the scenarios to harm our organisations when we write exercises, we all know that the people best equipped to harm an organisation are those of us that work for it.

We know our way around. We know where the back doors are, and the vulnerabilities.  It’s much easier to ‘get’ an organisation from the inside.

The authors of the CERT Guide to Insider Threats agree.  They advise on many kinds of potential insider activity, including employees past and present, contractors, service providers, outsources and “even cloud-computing vendors”.

With information on how to identify signs of potential activity, recognise threats, implement controls and prepare for unusual insider attacks, this book is particularly worth a read if you’re involved in the security aspect of your organisation.

Case studies and best practice abound; click the link or the picture to look inside the book yourself.
