Insider Threats: Focus On The User, Not The Data
Great article! It is refreshing to finally see articles that address the true root of the security problem. The more we educate your uses the safer our companies will be. I have always believed that the more you educate a user on security the more eyes and ears you have throughout the company you have looking for security issues. I know that this works because I have seen it in action and anyone who does not think that user education is worth the time or money is losing out on a valuable security resource.

2015 is the year for tackling insider threats

Great article Daniel. Nearly all networks have authenticated users with access and rights, who carry out the kind of malicious or careless behavior that often leads to security breaches. 2015 does seem set to be a huge year for tackling the insider threat, as we've seen from our recent research report of 500 IT professionals. More and more organizations are now planning to launch an insider threat program and within that program they are looking to take a joined-up approach of better user education and enhanced user technology solutions. The good news is that the technology is available today to help secure user access to company resources and protect users from their own casual behavior.
