On Tuesday, July 30, Lancope will host a free webinar to discuss how organizations can defend their networks from insider threats. The insider threat is quickly becoming a key concern for security teams. Today’s organizations have to be concerned not only about malicious and negligent insiders, but also about those inside the organization who could be compromised via social engineering and other tactics. According to the Verizon 2013 Data Breach Investigations Report, 76 percent of the breaches it analyzed used weak or stolen credentials to gain network access.
Unfortunately, risky network activities conducted by insiders (or outsiders using valid credentials) can be very difficult to detect with conventional security controls. Click here to register for Lancope’s webinar and learn about best practices for quickly identifying and thwarting insider threats.
