“Detect, Deter, Mitigate.”
That’s the theme of a new government program designating September as Insider Threat Awareness month. With it, SecurityOrb.com joins our colleagues in government, industry, and education to promote awareness of this critical threat to the nation and your organization. Beginning next week, we will be making weekly posts on our social media pages on this topic to help us all stay vigilant in our security awareness and in protecting the data entrusted to us.
Anyone can wittingly or unwittingly become an insider threat, and all organizations are vulnerable. Insider incidents damage national security, risk lives and cause the loss of classified information and profit. They can also result in trade secret theft, fraud, and sabotage that can significantly damage an organization’s business and reputation.
Look for the first of our weekly messages this September.
