Cyber Attacks: How Can You Reduce the Risk?


Regulatory compliance management (such as PCI, HIPAA, ISO) and security breach protection, is already a complex challenge present in many organizations today. The complexity is continuing to grow, and exponentially, with the increasing sources, numbers and types of attacks being generated, with the proliferation of Cloud technologies. With this complexity also comes higher costs in terms of not only the number of security incidents that need to be investigated, the number of tools needed and in finding the skilled personnel to manage it. And, the cost of these breaches are being measured beyond mere dollars to their detrimental impacts on a company’s brand and reputation, customer and supplier relationships, employee productivity, and all the way up the organization’s board and C-Level reputations.

Insider Threats and Risk

David Shefter, CTO, Ziften

At the end of day, people within your organization are the key to the company’s success, but also can be the greatest threat. Often, the cyber security discussion centers on malicious external actors and technology threats, but although less prevalent, insider threats pose arguably a higher degree of risk. We will discuss some of causes for the insider threat and approaches to managing insider risk through a people, process and technology framework.
