BOOK EXCERPT:

CERT's definitive, up-to-the-minute guide to insider threats: recognizing them, preventing them, detecting them, and mitigating them • •The only 'insider threat' guide from CERT, the world's leading information security experts: based on CERT's uniquely comprehensive collection of malicious insider incidents. •Presents practical strategies for assessing and managing insider risks associated with technology, organization, personnel, business, and process. •Exceptionally timely: indispensable for the 'Era of Wikileaks' Wikileaks recent data exposures demonstrate the danger now posed by insiders, who can often bypass physical and technical security measures designed to prevent unauthorized access. Insiders are already familiar with their organizations' policies, procedures, and technologies, and can often identify vulnerabilities more effectively than outside 'hackers.' Most IT security mechanisms are implemented primarily to defend against external threats, leaving potentially enormous vulnerabilities exposed. Now, the insider threat team at CERT, the world's leading information security experts, helps readers systematically identify, prevent, detect, and mitigate threats arising from inside the organization. Drawing on their advanced research with the US Secret Service and Department of Defense, as well as the world's largest database of insider attacks, the authors systematically address four key types of insider 'cybercrime': national security espionage, IT sabotage, theft of intellectual property, and fraud. For each, they present an up-to-date crime profile: who typically commits these crimes (and why); relevant organizational issues; methods of attack, impacts, and precursors that could have warned the organization in advance. In addition to describing patterns that readers can use in their own organizations, the authors offer today's most effective psychological, technical, organizational, cultural, and process-based countermeasures.

BOOK EXCERPT:

High-security organizations around the world face devastating threats from insiders—trusted employees with access to sensitive information, facilities, and materials. From Edward Snowden to the Fort Hood shooter to the theft of nuclear materials, the threat from insiders is on the front page and at the top of the policy agenda. Insider Threats offers detailed case studies of insider disasters across a range of different types of institutions, from biological research laboratories, to nuclear power plants, to the U.S. Army. Matthew Bunn and Scott D. Sagan outline cognitive and organizational biases that lead organizations to downplay the insider threat, and they synthesize "worst practices" from these past mistakes, offering lessons that will be valuable for any organization with high security and a lot to lose. Insider threats pose dangers to anyone who handles information that is secret or proprietary, material that is highly valuable or hazardous, people who must be protected, or facilities that might be sabotaged. This is the first book to offer in-depth case studies across a range of industries and contexts, allowing entities such as nuclear facilities and casinos to learn from each other. It also offers an unprecedented analysis of terrorist thinking about using insiders to get fissile material or sabotage nuclear facilities.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Data Loss Prevention is easier and cheaper than cure - the insider threat poses a significant and increasing problem for organisations. The use of highly connected computers makes controlling information much more difficult than in the past. This new pocket guide intends to shed light on the key security issues facing organisations from insiders to get them up to speed quickly. It is written by Clive Blackwell who is a researcher at Royal Holloway, University of London, where his main field is security architecture. He has developed a practical three-layer security architecture to model computer networks such as the Internet and other complex systems such as critical infrastructure. He is currently applying the model to the insider threat within different business sectors, which has resulted in several academic papers. Clive is a regular speaker on security at both academic and business conferences in the US and Europe as well as the UK. He has recently been invited to give talks on the insider threat at two major business conferences. He has about 20 publications to his name within the last two years, so he is aware of the security issues facing business.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Every type of organization is vulnerable to insider abuse, errors, and malicious attacks: Grant anyone access to a system and you automatically introduce a vulnerability. Insiders can be current or former employees, contractors, or other business partners who have been granted authorized access to networks, systems, or data, and all of them can bypass security measures through legitimate means. Insider Threat – A Guide to Understanding, Detecting, and Defending Against the Enemy from Within shows how a security culture based on international best practice can help mitigate the insider threat, providing short-term quick fixes and long-term solutions that can be applied as part of an effective insider threat program. Read this book to learn the seven organizational characteristics common to insider threat victims; the ten stages of a malicious attack; the ten steps of a successful insider threat program; and the construction of a three-tier security culture, encompassing artefacts, values, and shared assumptions. Perhaps most importantly, it also sets out what not to do, listing a set of worst practices that should be avoided. About the author Dr Julie Mehan is the founder and president of JEMStone Strategies and a principal in a strategic consulting firm in Virginia. She has delivered cybersecurity and related privacy services to senior commercial, Department of Defense, and federal government clients.

Just as American and European critical infrastructure executives were beginning to wrap their minds around the devastation of the Office of Personnel Management breach, ransomware erupted onto the scene, followed by concentrated DDoS attacks such as the Mirai botnet attack on Dyn, which enabled a quantum leap for cyber criminals. Now, all techno-forensic indicators suggest that an under-discussed cyber-kinetic attack vector will ubiquitously permeate all critical infrastructure sectors due to a dearth of layered bleeding-edge military grade cybersecurity solutions. Unless organizations act immediately, in 2017 The Insider Threat Epidemic Begins.In this brief, entitled "In 2017, The Insider Threat Epidemic Begins" ArtOfTheHak offers a comprehensive analysis of the Insider Threat Epidemic, including research on:-Characterizing Insider Threats (the insider threat cyber 'kill chain,' non-malicious insider threats, malicious insider threats)-The Insider Threat Debate-Policies, Procedures, and Guidelines to Combat Insider Threats-Non-Technical Controls-Technical Controls
