Podcast: How To Defend Against Insider Threats

2 minutes read

In this episode of Krome Cast Tech IT Out, join Sam Mager and Paul Edwards, Head of Security Operations, as they delve into the complex and ever-present world of Insider Threats.

Insider threats come in various forms, and this podcast explores the intricacies of accidental threats, malicious, and social engineering scenarios.

Learn how seemingly innocent actions, like taking a photo in the office, can inadvertently expose sensitive data or how a simple mistype in an email address can lead to data leakage. The discussion also takes you through the motives behind malicious insiders who aim to profit from or harm your organisation, along with the ominous world of social engineering, where cybercriminals manipulate trust to gain unauthorised access.

When it comes to defending against insider threats, the right training, tools and strategies are vital. In this podcast, our Head of SOC Paul outlines the role of advanced solutions like Palo Alto Network firewalls and SSL decryption in addressing accidental breaches. Paul also highlights the significance of monitoring tools such as Darktrace in detecting and mitigating malicious threats, along with the importance of document classification and compliance tools within Office 365 to control data sharing and access.
