Insiders have always and will always be a problem. The first step is to better understand the challenges and be able to effectively communicate with others. Many cybersecurity professionals are hesitant at addressing internal risks and feel much more comfortable at tackling external threats. This creates an imbalance, potentially to the detriment of the organization. The industry must become savvier at managing both internal and external risks.
Understanding insider risks can be daunting, but is not impossible. They represent a very real and important aspect which must be incorporated into a corporate security plan. The first step is to reduce the ambiguity and be able to facilitate coordinated efforts. In many cases this can be hampered by a lack of understanding and differences in lexicon. The Field Guide for Insider Threats is a quick read and handy guide to better understand, communicate, and prioritize insider threats.
