About this Webinar

Inside the government we hear a lot about the “insider threat,” but is it really that big of a deal? After all, there are 7 billion more outsiders than insiders. However, insiders already start with some level of access and trust which can be abused to cause far greater damage. Compliance is not the solution — fully compliant systems are hacked daily. Rather, we need to develop resilience to threats that allows us to prevent, detect, deny, and respond to whatever comes our way. This especially rings true in Government agencies today.

The Critical Security Controls (CSC) represent a world-class framework for configuring and dealing specifically with the insider threat. Join SANS Instructor and Government Security Expert, G. Mark Hardy in this upcoming webinar where he will show that by following these guidelines and restricting privileges to only those needed to do a job (and reporting and auditing what actions are taken), government agencies can significantly reduce the likelihood of abuse of insider credentials, even by outside attackers. Yes, there is hope, and you can deliver on that promise by taking action now. This is a webinar you don’t want to miss!
