Course Overview
Do you have an insider threat program in your organization? Both the Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report and the ENISA annual Threat report have insider threats as a top 10 threat facing organizations today. Hi, my name is Richard Harpur, and welcome to my course, Cybersecurity Threats: Insider Threats. Accidental insiders are frequently forgotten when assessing risks within organizations. Malicious insiders are intent on personally gaining at the expense of the organization. Every organization has risks from both of these types of insiders, and I will teach you how to address that risk. I'm going to start by showing you why the insider threat is so important and the damage that can be cause from an insider threat. As we progress through this course, you will learn how to recognize and detect insider threats, what motivates a malicious insider to attack your organization, how best to detect insider threats and suspicious behavior, and what approaches you should take when you need to respond to an insider incident. Finally, what countermeasures can you put in place to defend your network from insider attacks? By the end of this course, you will be fully informed and know what to do to defend your systems from insider incidents. I hope you join me on this course to learn all about Cybersecurity Threats: Insider Threats at Pluralsight.
