Insider Threat Awareness Month 2020
By Stephen Delp
Insider Threat Awareness
September is the United States National Insider Threat Awareness Month. This important event helps raise awareness for the threats organizations face from trusted insiders — both intentional and unintentional. Unfortunately, examples of insider threat happen every day, as shown by this recent hacking event with Tesla and this attack against a prominent Oklahoma-based petroleum company.
At Kaseware, both our government and Fortune 500 clients frequently use Kaseware to manage Insider Threats (IT) investigations. We are proud to support the success of these programs within so many great organizations. Our users often say that our platform’s ability to analyze all their data in one place — combining case management, link analysis, open source intelligence (OSINT), analytics, and integrations to commonly used systems like Splunk — helps them perform their duties more effectively. Our users can reduce dwell time and quickly close more investigations, with less demand on their precious resources.

This year’s theme is “Resilience,” which is especially important in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. Resilience builds good decision making skills and enables people to avoid situations where they could become targets of exploitative opportunity.
