An insider threat is a malicious threat to an organization that comes from people within a company, including employees, former employees, contractors or business associates, who have inside information concerning a company’s security practices, trade secrets, data and computer systems. The threat may involve fraud, theft of confidential information or trade secrets or the sabotage of computer systems.
Coupled with unprecedented cybersecurity risks posed by outside private and state-sponsored actors and entities, US industry is confronting new and evolving security, legal and compliance challenges. If inadequately addressed, these risks could translate into devastating national security, business and financial consequences.
In response to the challenges of managing a myriad of new and evolving risks, American Conference Institute is pleased to announce its inaugural Industry Forum on Insider Threat and Security Compliance. Unlike other events, this program is uniquely designed to focus on best practices for implementing insider threat and security programs that not only meet government expectations-but are effective in practice.
Join your industry and private practice peers for an advanced, practical discussion on how to evolve your legal, compliance and security approaches to newfound risks and realities.
WilmerHale Partner Ben Powell will co-chair this event, and participate in the session "How to Enhance Your Cyber Counter-Intelligence Program: What is Now Required for Your Security Program, Early Attack Identification and Supplier Risk Management."
