Insider Threats Force Balance Between Security and Access

Insider Threats - Security Access Balance

Security experts caution that non-malicious actors within the enterprise are the more challenging aspect of the insider threat, calling for rethinking policies to better tailor employee and vendor access.

There may be no single solution to the complex challenge of protecting against insider threats within the enterprise, but IT leaders can help their cause with prudent policies that put limits on who can access what kinds of data, and working to boost awareness of security issues throughout the organization.  
So argues Michael Dent, CISO of Fairfax County, Va., who spoke at a panel discussion on insider threats along with other security experts at a recent government IT conference hosted by Symantec.
