Building a holistic insider risk program for the cloud era
The digital revolution has introduced new risks to business across an ever increasing and evolving threat surface. While organizations have prioritized their cybersecurity efforts on external threats for many years, lately there has been increased scrutiny of risks posed by trusted insiders due to the potential greater damage they may cause.

Mitigating insider risks requires cross functional teams working together, stemming from a holistic approach. This paper addresses the journey that organizations should consider embarking on to combat the growing risk from insiders.
