Many enterprise companies often struggle with insider threat, whether it's intentional or accidental. This threat extends throughout every aspect of an organization, so it's vital to mitigate any threat that presents itself to the company.
In this video, Dawn Cappelli, a member of the Technical Staff in CERT at Carnegie Mellon University's Software Institute, outlines three different types of intentional insider threats. She describes all three and explains what patterns to watch for in each of those crimes. She'll also provide the tools needed to develop mitigation strategies for each type of crime.
