Today, most organizations are keenly aware of deliberate insider threats that pose risk to their cybersecurity posture. But recently the internal threat has morphed. More than ever "accidental insiders" — sources of vulnerability who are not maliciously trying to cause harm, are unknowingly presenting major risks which can compromise an organization and its infrastructure. This panel sponsored by Booz Allen Hamilton, will bring together top industry experts to discuss the threats posed by these accidental insiders. Several questions and issues will be explored including: How do you define and characterize accidental insider threats? How prevalent are these threats? How do you measure the impact of an accidental insider threat incident after it has occurred? How does legislation and policy affect what organizations can do to address these threats?
Faced with rapid technological advancements and increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks, organizations must act now to acquire or improve cyber resilience to protect their agencies or departments from theft, fraud and sabotage. Experience has shown that cyber resilience requires a coordinated approach across five areas: policy and compliance; budget; the IT enterprise architecture; acquisitions, and security operations. Determining where to focus first is often difficult. Many organizations begin with a situational assessment of their cyber health within the context of the current environment and their own business and mission imperatives. From there, organizations can quickly prioritize problems -business processes, operational, technological or personnel - and take decisive actions that will enhance cyber resilience and help reduce risk.
If the lock to your house required special training to work, you'd be more likely to take your chances and leave the place unlocked. That's how it is with cyber security. If security procedures and systems are too complicated, users tend to skip them. But research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology is establishing a link between usability and security and will make the results available this summer to federal agencies.
Uh oh. It's happened again. A hard drive containing a terabyte of personally identifiable information has gone missing. It disappeared from a lab desk inside the National Archives in College Park, Maryland. The disk housed social security numbers of Clinton White House visitors and of the Gore family. Once again proving that the insider threat is as potent as any attack launched from overseas. I'm Tom Temin.
The Cybersecurity Enhancement Act is making its way through the House.
