Remote Work and the New Unintentional Insider Threat

Tuesday, September 13 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Event Information


According to Stanford University, 88% of breaches are the result of human error. And while most of these errors are unintentional, we cannot ignore the power of people, especially in today's remote world. Unpredictable actions can be the hardest to defend against. A perfectly well-reasoned and trained employee who takes corporate security precautions seriously can still have an off day and accidentally click on a phishing link, send a proprietary email to the wrong person, or connect to an insecure Wi-Fi network. This session will detail how security practitioners can protect against the unpredictable and use influence to combat one of organizations’ biggest security threats: humans.  

  • Attendees will learn about common sources of accidental data links including configuration errors (particularly in the cloud); attaching the wrong data/document; not being aware or ignoring policy and phishing/vishing. 
  • Participants will learn how to leverage the power of influence to help mitigate threats, not just from employees, but also from customers and partners as well.
  • A key takeaway will be audience members learning specific processes and solutions that can be implemented to prevent the likelihood of human errors in our remote world.
