Battling the Insider Threat: What Works?Christopher Greany of Barclays to Provide Insights at ISMG Event in London
Education plays a critical role in any program designed to combat insider threats, says Christopher Greany, head of group investigations at Barclays, a British multinational investment bank and financial services company. He'll discuss how to start an effective insider threat program in a presentation at Information Security Media Group's Security Summit: London, to be held Oct. 23.
"We have a big educational awareness campaign within our organization. ... That's about changing the culture and the mindset of people in the organization to understand the threats coming up on their desktop and laptop," Greany says in an interview with ISMG. "That educational awareness never stops. We keep rolling it through and we keep reminding people."
In this interview (see audio link below photo), Greany also discusses:
- The three main categories of insider threat;
- Fundamental steps in mitigating threats;
- Whether enforcement of the EU's General Data Protection Regulation has affected insider threat mitigation strategies.
Greany is the head of group investigations at Barclays. Working as part of the chief security office, he leads the strategic implementation and delivery of investigations across Barclays' international footprint. He is also responsible for Barclays' global insider threat program and cyber forensics capability.
