Speaking opportunity: Infosecurity webinar, Oct 22, on insider threats

I’m looking for 2-3 independent information security experts for the following webinar session, for Infosecurity Magazine on Thursday, October 22:

The Kick Inside – dealing with threats from within your firm

Major incidents are happening almost every day and as a result companies are scrambling to protect and lock down their systems from outside intruders. But perhaps in the rush one detail is being overlooked: insider threats. And even if most companies are aware of this attack vector it would seem they are ill prepared to deal with it.

This webinar we will tell you just how real this threat is and how best to protect your company from the enemy within.

We’ll examine:

  • What exactly an insider threat is?
  • Who is an insider threat?
  • What does it take to build a customizable insider threat program?
  • How do you develop and implement best policies, practices & training into your organization?
  • Please note, this is slightly later than our usual time, and will take place at 1600 BST/1100 EDT.

    As ever, our preference is for CISOs, consultants, academics and other independent security experts; the session is not open to IT security vendor speakers sadly.

    If you’re interested in taking part, please <a href="mailto:journalism@stephenpritchard.com?subject=Speaker suggestion, Infosecurity webinar, 22 10 2015">email me in the first instance, but no later than 1700 BST, Thursday Oct 1st.
