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.
