Businesses today are challenged by individuals and state actors who seek to steal or misuse their intellectual property. In some cases, state actors spend decades working themselves into a position of trust inside an organization in order to exfiltrate your most important intellectual property. The risk posed by the insider threat is significant.
In this webinar, Bryghtpath Principal & CEO Bryan Strawser discusses the insider threat that lurks within your organization – how you can prevent or mitigate that threat – and how to identify individuals most at risk for this type of action.
Organizations can often detect when outsiders attempt to gain access to a company’s intellectual property physically or electronically – and can often mitigate this threat quite quickly. However, the insider who has access to intellectual property or other physical assets is much more difficult to detect – and often can cause far more damage than an external threat to your organization.
An insider threat may steal for personal gain, or maybe motivated ideologically, could hold a grudge against your organization, or even could have been placed in your organization by a state actor seeking to gain access to your organization’s intellectual property.
Key topics discussed in this webinar include:
- How insiders steal intellectual property
- Basic mitigation actions to address insider threats
- The importance of strong law enforcement partnerships
