Insider attacks should be a major concern for organisations as they pose a greater risk than outsider attacks.  Insider attacks cost organisations untold Millions!

“Insider threat” is a term used to describe employees, contractors, consultants and other business affiliates who have the business or professional capability to exploit internal financial policies, or misuse their computer network access or violate security policy.

This course will focus on the profiling, detection of such individuals, and effective controls to place into prevention policies.
