The Enemy Within: Detecting and Mitigating Insider Threats

Ransomware is both scourge and savior. While it’s not typically considered an insider threat, it acts from the inside, using insider identities, encrypting files that insiders have access to on endpoints and file shares. Learn how organizations are using ransomware to identify and confront vulnerabilities that expose them to rogue employees, abusive administrators, and hackers.

Abstract
