Contingency Corner: Insider Threat

by | Dec 11, 2023 | Contingency

An Insider Threat comes from the intentional or unintentional use of legitimate access to cause harm or damage.

All organizations face a risk of insider threats, though most are unintentional:

  • Train staff to identify phishing scams and conduct testing if possible
  • Encourage reporting of security incidents and things that are out of the ordinary
  • Enforce the use of strong passwords and two-factor authentication to protect data
  • Ensure accountability for all devices that touch your networks
  • Build trust within your organization to avoid damage from disgruntled staff
  • Consider how your organization will identify and respond to breaches
