High impact, interactive face to face training to raise awareness of insider threat risks to your organisation. Employees are often cited as being the biggest security weakness in your organisation, we help you turn them into your greatest defence. Our insider threat training program has been developed from ground-breaking research into the psychology and motivations of insiders. We use real cases to illustrate the key principles. “Insider threat programs are built to defend against Manning and Snowden, but we need to protect against the next threat, the one that hasn’t happened yet..” – USA DoD The insider threat is a widespread and rapidly growing issue. Studies have shown that shareholders and the public attribute more blame on the organisation when a breach is caused by an insider as opposed to an “outsider”. This training program furnishes your staff with the confidence to challenge and stop insider threats within your organisation before it gets to the breach stage.
