Presented By: Nick Cavalancia

Not all cloud security threats originate from outside the organization. Modern business must also contend with compromised insiders (e.g., employees whose credentials were stolen), negligent insiders (staffers who misplace a device or mistakenly share critical information with unauthorized users) and malicious insiders (disgruntled workers who gain revenge via acts of theft, fraud and sabotage). Even worse, the risk of human error multiplies in the cloud, where compromised or stolen credentials can quickly cause damage across a range of applications and data sources. This session will explore how businesses can protect the cloud environment from internal threats.
