Building Resilience to Insider Risk

Online: Wednesday, October 27th, 2021 | Time: 12:00-2:15pm ET / 9:00-11:15am PT

Create a Robust Risk Strategy for a Public Sector Environment

Insider threats, or security risks that, unwittingly or wittingly, originate from within your organization, pose a significant challenge for the public sector. Why? Because, unlike other threats, they are so hard to detect. In today’s environment, the risk of negligent and malicious insiders gaining greater access to critical assets and data has become especially urgent. An insider threat can be anyone from a careless employee to a rogue business partner. 

That’s why Public Sector Network has put together a virtual event on Building Resilience to Insider Risk. This program will explore leading ways to boost security and compliance while leveraging the best prevention and detection tools. Join your fellow public sector security professionals and become better equipped to spot Insider Threats before a breach happens.
