Randy Trzeciak, director of the CERT Insider Threat Center at Carnegie Mellon University, says he is frequently asked: "Haven't we solved the insider threat problem?" Far from it, he responds. And in fact he is helping many organizations stand up insider threat defense programs.
In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent San Francisco Fraud and Breach Prevention Summit, Trzeciak discusses:
- Why the insider threat remains an enterprise concern;
- Why accidental insiders are taking attention away from malicious insiders;
- Key elements of an insider threat program.
As director of the CERT Insider Threat Center at Carnegie Mellon University, Trzeciak works at the Software Engineering Institute, where his team researches threats trusted insiders pose to the U.S. government, industry and academia.
