Report: Security From The Inside Out

New report offers retrospective on recent insider attacks, threats, and defenses

IT and network administrators are increasingly concerned about data leaks and attacks from inside the company, but their user awareness training programs are falling short of the mark.

These are two of the conclusions found in "An Insider Threat Reality Check," a new Alert posted this week on Dark Reading's Insider Threat Tech Center.

The Alert offers a compendium of recent news coverage on the topic of insider attacks and vulnerabilities, as well as insight on user strategies for defending against data leaks.

The report includes material on attitudes toward data leaks, insight on the effectiveness of internal security training programs, feedback on malware discovered by the Air Force, a look at passwords and PINs for mobile devices, and a look at how ISPs regard the federal bot notification initiative.

To get a closer look at recent developments in insider threats, download the free report.
