Cybersecurity: Anatomy of Three Insider Threat Cases – Why Employee Education Efforts are Critical to Your Business

As more and more companies become victim to data loss through phishing campaigns and insider threats, and the loss of data becomes riskier, companies are struggling to address these risks through proper employee education efforts. Employee education has been found to be effective to reduce cyber risk, and it is a big bang for your buck. Organizations know that education is an important risk management tool to prepare employees about the risks of data loss, but often struggle to implement an effective employee education program.

Join Linn Freedman, Partner at Robinson & Cole and data privacy expert, and Matthew Putvinski from Wolf & Company for a discussion on cybersecurity awareness within your organization, employee security mistakes, and insider threats. The speakers will present three distinct case studies and discuss how each company dealt with different insider threats and cascading effects, and the lessons learned. They will also discuss why employee engagement is so important and the steps companies can take to address the issue of employee error and intentional conduct. Most employees want to do the right thing. Providing them with the tools to do so and making them data stewards engages them in the solution and makes them feel like an important part of the data security process within your organization.  There are different ways to implement education programs, and tips will be given from many years of experimentation.  Data privacy and security training is not a one and done project. The risks continue to change, technology becomes more advanced and this area is not static.
