Good morning everyone!
As we are all recovering from the WannaCry ransomware saga (details here), I wanted to let you all know that I am starting a podcast centered on insider threat. This is an area of great concern, especially today. There are reports that 40-60% (depending on who is writing it and what they sell) of data breaches are the result of some sort of insider interaction. This could be as simple as accidentally clicking on an email link or attachment, but it could also include instances of intentional malicious acts conducted by trusted members of the organization.
In The Insider Threat Podcast, I will explore the issues, causes, and potential solutions to the problem. I will talk about various vendors and technologies whose aim is to minimize impacts of the “human factor”, as well as non-technical approaches.
As always, feedback is essential for building it out and improvement for future episodes. If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to email or contact me on Twitter. I am currently working on getting subscription links to all the most popular podcatcher sites and apps, and will update those as needed on the site.
Thank you for your continued support and your never ending dedication to the information security field.
