With Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning in the news, concerns over insider threats are bigger than ever. In fact, a recent survey shows a malicious attack makes up for 42% of breaches worldwide, while human error amounts to 30%. But many organizations are underprepared to respond.
“From the BCP perspective, we always ask, do you have data? Do you back it up? Do you make copies? But we don’t always ask the important question: what happens to that data if it’s compromised?” says Frank Slater, Director of Consulting Services with CGI and presenter of Insider Threat Program: Protecting the Crown Jewels, a featured session coming to DRI2015. “Not lost — lost you can replicate — but compromised.”
This fascinating session is designed to help business continuity pros recognize the most important data sets in their organizations — and how they might be at risk. It will also detail the best methods of working with the rest of the business — such as security and HR — to develop effective strategies to protect data and mitigate damage in the event of an attack.
