April 25th Chapter Meeting

Posted by NB Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Please join ISSA KC chapter members and other security professionals at Lidia's Restaurant.

Topic: Be Aware of the Risk Inside

Historically organizations prioritize external threats above insider threats, however employees pose major security vulnerabilities and account for nearly 90% of all security incidents. Some incidents are malicious/intentional (29%), while the majority are unintentional (71%). Incidents come in many forms, including information and physical property theft, unauthorized access, workplace violence, sabotage, security compromise and espionage. Whether malicious or accidental, insider incidents can weaken customer trust and cause irreparable transactional and reputational damage for a company. Understanding the potential threats and creating a holistic approach to managing insider risk is the key to safeguarding your ‘keys to the kingdom’.
