“The insider threat materializes in multiple forms. Malicious insiders like Edward Snowden command the most attention but there is another group that creates the majority of risk. These include negligent employees and those whose credentials have been compromised by outside attackers,” said Wilcox. “To contend with challenges, agencies are faced with having to wade through numerous vendor pitches as well as adhere to strict purchasing guidelines and regulations. I’ll offer guidance on how to understand what it takes to address the insider threat as well as how to make effective technology acquisitions.”

The Insider Threat Summit is being held April 17 and 18 at the Monterey Marriott in Monterey, Calif. Wilcox will present on April 17 at 4:35 PM PDT. For more information on the summit, visit: https://www.insiderthreatevents.com/agendas.
