Title: Insider Threats in a Borderless Work Environment


In today's world, employees more frequently are working from home, at an off-site location, or on the road.  While beneficial to an organization's bottom-line, this perimeter-less workspace creates new digital fence lines with new vulnerabilities across digital, physical, and human domains. These new threats pose long-term risk to organizations and make traditional mitigation approaches obsolete. To properly respond, organizations need creative ways to gauge the behavioral stressors, perceptions, associations, plans, intentions, and actions of remote workers. Likewise, they need new ways to protect sensitive data, from creation to consumption to destruction. By reviewing a case study that illustrates best practices, learn new lessons on how to navigate the borderless insider risk domain.
