Data Loss Prevention is easier and cheaper than cure.

The insider threat poses a significant and increasing problem for organisations. The use of highly connected computers makes controlling information much more difficult than in the past. This is shown by the regular stories of data loss in the media such as the 25 million personal records mailed out by Revenue and Customs in the UK. In addition, we do not know enough about the insider threat, as of course many attacks are unknown to their victims or are not made public.

An Insider Attack

This is the execution of a latent threat by an insider to achieve their goals, which usually has a detrimental effect on the organisation. They are often straightforward to perpetrate without detection using their legitimate access or acquiring unauthorised access using their knowledge of system weaknesses to defeat the controls. We need to understand what is valuable to insiders and their likely methods of attack to determine the necessary defensive measures. We believe that the insider threat is a difficult problem that requires systematic analysis to mitigate.

This new pocket guide intends to shed light on the key security issues facing organisations from insiders to get them up to speed quickly.
