Re: Insider Threats are REAL
This is what every company fears of. After hiring a certain someone with so much potential, we have hopes for this person to put their best foot forward to contribute towards the growing of the company. However, this particular someone steals from us and sabotages our corporation instead. Is this the way we get rewarded for wanting to give this person an opportunity when we deicided to hire them at the beginning?

Re: Insider Threats are REAL
The headline is very misleading. Musk has accused him of this, but so far, hasnt presented any evidence that it happened. At the same time, the police investigated Musks claim this guy said he would shoot the place up, and found it to be unbelievable. Likely, Musk made that up. The headline should either say that Musk accuses employee of doing this, or write it with a question mark, indicating that you dont know if its true. Considering all of the times Musk has spoken falsehoods, hes the last person I would believe in a dispute.

Insider Threats are REAL
These types of threats are real and growing daily, and what we need to keep in mind is no matter how big a company we/you are, and no matter how mature your data governance, policies, and procedures are, there's always going to be a handful of employees who find a way around the gates.  Threats like this will only continue to grow as malicious users are finding new ways to circumvent the traditional perimeter security that's in place, and utilize new tools that, we the average consumer, can pull down from anywhere.  No matter how hard we try we can't stop everyone, but we can prepare ourselves by having the right technology in place to retrace these attackers steps to take a more proactive stance on Cybersecurity.  More importantly is that we continue to educate employees, and all trusted partners and vendors so that when an outside attacker is trying to get in, they're educated enough to know what to do in order to keep the company safe.

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
