Insider Threat - The Risk That Doesn't Go Away

Presented by

Shareth Ben, Securonix | Jim Ammons, Booz Allen Hamilton | Amy Boawn, Booz Allen Hamilton

About this talk

While ransomware grabs headlines, insider threats can do just as much damage and be difficult to detect without proper tools, data, and processes. Additionally, growth in cloud and hybrid work environments has outpaced insider threat investments. This leaves organizations vulnerable to malicious, accidental, and negligent insiders. According to Forrester, 25% of breaches resulted from internal incidents, and almost half of those were categorized as malicious. Due to current events, insider threats have evolved, and organizations have more to consider than data leaving the organizations and privileged users. Employee stressors, disengagement, and potential attrition pose a serious risk and are challenging for organizations to detect and mitigate. In this webinar, Jim Ammons and Amy Boawn, both Senior Associates with Booz Allen's Commercial Insider Risk Strategy team and Shareth Ben, Vice President of Customer Success at Securonix, will: • Discuss how insider threats have changed and the new challenges they present? • Talk through the difference in threat vectors and actors per Securonix and BAH' insider threat experiences. • Provide some "inside" insights on recent insider risk engagements and newsworthy events. • Discuss the benefits of a converged approach for protecting assets through a holistic people, process, and technology lens. Jim Ammons is currently an Insider Risk Senior Associate at Booz Allen Hamilton. Prior to joining Booz Allen, he was the director of Insider Threat at Nike after retiring from the FBI. Amy Boawn is a Senior Associate at Booz Allen Hamilton, responsible for Insider Risk and Digital Fraud Strategy. Prior to Booz Allen, she worked internal and external investigations for multiple Fortune 100 financial institutions. Shareth Ben is the VP of Customer Success at Securonix. Previously he was the Executive Director of Insider Threat & Cyber Threat Analytics.
