Earlier this year Chris published an article in the Summer edition of Cyber Security Review. He discusses how cyber security is an issue on the agenda for most boards. The insider threat generally receives less attention. As a result, the human factors aspects of cyber security can become the weak link in organisations’ cyber defences, leaving the organisations vulnerable and their boards open to criticism and reputational damage. This article explores the subject of cyber insiders and the key measures all boards should take to ensure that their organisation is appropriately protected against this threat.
