Go beyond insider threat and find out how to leverage data to make smarter security-based business decisions.
Insider threats are still a growing problem, despite increasing mindshare and budgets. The key to stopping these threats – and to strengthening the business as a whole – is making data-driven business decisions using visibility into data, machines, applications, and people.
In this year’s Global Insider Threat Summit, leading experts from top organizations such as MITRE and Flex will share how they're utilizing data to build stronger business and security strategies. In exclusive knowledge-sharing sessions, speakers will discuss:
- How to implement a data-driven security strategy.
- How the MITRE ATT&CK framework can be utilized to drive insider threat detection.
- The latest cutting-edge research into insider threats.
- How to use data to elevate security to a board-level discussion.
- Why an effective insider threat approach has far-reaching benefits across security and across the business.
