Insider Threat Book PDF summary

Every type of organization is vulnerable to insider abuse, errors, and malicious attacks: Grant anyone access to a system and you automatically introduce a vulnerability. Insiders can be current or former employees, contractors, or other business partners who have been granted authorized access to networks, systems, or data, and all of them can bypass security measures through legitimate means. Insider Threat – A Guide to Understanding, Detecting, and Defending Against the Enemy from Within shows how a security culture based on international best practice can help mitigate the insider threat, providing short-term quick fixes and long-term solutions that can be applied as part of an effective insider threat program. Read this book to learn the seven organizational characteristics common to insider threat victims; the ten stages of a malicious attack; the ten steps of a successful insider threat program; and the construction of a three-tier security culture, encompassing artefacts, values, and shared assumptions. Perhaps most importantly, it also sets out what not to do, listing a set of worst practices that should be avoided. About the author Dr Julie Mehan is the founder and president of JEMStone Strategies and a principal in a strategic consulting firm in Virginia. She has delivered cybersecurity and related privacy services to senior commercial, Department of Defense, and federal government clients. Dr Mehan is also an associate professor at the University of Maryland University College, specializing in courses in cybersecurity, cyberterror, IT in organizations, and ethics in an Internet society

Today's malware mutates randomly to avoid detection, but reactively adaptive malware is more intelligent, learning and adapting to new computer defenses on the fly. Using the same algorithms that antivirus software uses to detect viruses, reactively adaptive malware deploys those algorithms to outwit antivirus defenses and to go undetected. This book provides details of the tools, the types of malware the tools will detect, implementation of the tools in a cloud computing framework and the applications for insider threat detection.
