Insider Threat Solutions − Moving from Concept to Reality

Jason R.C. Nurse and Elisa Bertino


As society has embraced technology and systems to promote services, trade and ubiquitous communication, it has also inadvertently exposed itself to a plethora of security risks. One of the most significant of these risks is that of insider threat, where privileged insiders (be they employees or trusted third-parties) within an enterprise, intentionally or inadvertently cause harm their organisations. While the topic of insider threat has been examined and researched for decades, the problem still persists, and some would even argue that it is becoming worse. Could this be the result of a disconnect between approaches and solutions being researched and those that are (or can be) actually implemented?
