RegisterHere2Intro to Insider Threats (1 day; April 20)                                               Insider Threat incidents are, on average, more costly and damaging to the organization than the more frequently occurring cyber incidents. This is because the insider knows where everything is and how both internal processes and IT systems work. Plus, they already have access to the organization’s buildings and computer systems. This course will give each student an understanding of the specific types of insiders, their characteristics, and mitigate best practices. Participants will also learn all of the components of an effective Insider Threat program.
