In Focus: Insider Threats

New In Focus now available on Insider Threats.

From the Department of Homeland Security:

DHS/US-CERT defines the insider threat as a current or former employee, contractor, or other business partner who has or had authorized access to an organization’s network, system, or data and intentionally misused that access to negatively affect the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of the organization’s information or information systems.

Upcoming elections, trade wars, 5G networks, and other electronic vulnerabilities have established Insider Threats as a clear and present danger for the nation’s safety and security. It can “compromise information, disrupt operations, or cause physical harm to employees”.
